This article advances goals 7 and 9 by outlining how energy can be generated from cashew industrial waste to achieve cleaner energy production in Burkina Faso. Nominated in September 2018 for the Elsevier Atlas Award.
To advance goals 7 and 13, and meet the global ambitions of sustainable energy transitions and universal energy access, this paper calls for transformations in the practice of knowledge-making and governance.
Pollutec 2018 logo
POLLUTEC is a world leading exhibition of environmental equipment technologies and services, the first ever event to focus on environment as a professional sector and has been at the heart of environment innovation since 1978. Pollutec provides a critical platform for the environment and climate change, bringing together environment professionals and technologists from across the world in Lyon. Pollutec’s major fields are: Water; Waste Management and Recycling; Instrumentation, Metrology, Automation; Risks Management (industrial & environmental); Air Quality; Sites and Soils Management (and Recovery); Energy (and sub-sectors such as biogas, renewables and energy efficiency) which are directly related to SDGs: 6,7,9,11,12,13,14,15
