Hydrogen as a clean, reliable and potentially sustainable energy vector has attracted growing interest for promoting the sustainable development of both industry and society worldwide. Hydrogen is a rising enabler for a multisectorial transition toward a low-carbon economy based on renewable energy sources. In this article, the authors argue that hydrogen is a game changer and review the policy framework for a hydrogen economy, contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 13.
Elsevier and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) are pleased to announce the third biennial Renewable Transformation Challenge. If you have an innovative proposal which contributes to the goal of transitioning to 100% renewable energy, submit your application for a chance to win €20,000.
To show the importance of climate action and to celebrate the more than 5-year collaboration between the Elsevier Chemistry journals department and the Elsevier Foundation, we have compiled this special issue, highlighting top chemistry content related to SDG 13 and providing information on past winners of the Green & Sustainable Chemistry Challenge.
Held in partnership with the University of Johannesburg, this Elsevier webinar discusses the SDGs and how researchers can incorporate them into their work.

Contributing to SDGs 7, 12 and 13, this article explores the damaging effects of batteries used in electronic devices, with a focus on the range of contaminants which are deposited in the environment and their long-term effects.

Samuel M. Gorton, Chapter 41 - Integrated agroecological technology networks for food, bioenergy, and biomaterial production, Editor(s): Anju Dahiya, Bioenergy (Second Edition), Academic Press, 2020, Pages 767-788, ISBN 9780128154977, https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-815497-7.00041-5.

This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 7 and 11 by discussing how we can create integrated ecological technologies that transform natural resources into anthropocentric goods and services, while restoring the land and reducing pollution by returning beneficial materials or energy to the ecosystem.
Solar photovoltaics (PV) is an energy technology that is already contributing substantially to CO2 emissions mitigation. Here, the authors analyse the factors that lie behind the huge cost reductions of solar PV and identify innovations in the pipeline that could contribute to maintaining a high learning rate. Moreover, this work shows how widespread Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) - which are used to model decarbonization pathways compatible with the Paris Agreement – need to evolve to better reflect the role of solar PV in future low-carbon energy scenarios. This closely relates to SDG 7 and 13.
Recycled paper hardboards were upcycled into CF-coated separators for Li-S batteries via a cost-effective method. The readily accessible, renewable materials used in this study provide the large potential for the commercialization of low-cost, eco-friendly Li-S batteries.
