Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this study shows that cathode-healing™ restores structure and functionality to well-used lithium cobalt oxide. The paper follows recycling activities from the collection of battery packs, through to extraction of electrolyte with carbon dioxide, industrial shredding, electrode harvesting, froth flotation, cathode-healing™ and finally, building new cells with recycled cathode and anode. The final products demonstrated useful capability in the first full cells made from direct recycled cathodes and anodes from an industrial source.
This book chapter addresses goals 7, 9, and 13 by reviewing the prospects and constraints for bioenergy development in Africa to ensure sustainable bioenergy production in the future.
This article addresses goals 7, 8, and 11 by explaining Green New Deal energy roadmaps for 143 countries, calling for a 100% transition of all-purpose business-as-usual (BAU) energy to wind-water-solar (WWS) energy, efficiency, and storage by 2050 with at least 80% by 2030.
This white paper examines whether ambitious renewable targets and private sector financing is compatible in Europe over the next decade. It directly relates to SDG 7 - affordable and clean energy, and SDG 13 - climate action.
This article addresses goals 7 and 11 by assessing the effects of residential building structure, socio-demographics, and ambient temperature conditions of a neighbourhood on overall energy expenditures of a household.
This book chapter addresses goals 7, 12, 13 and 14 by describing the fundamental issues of microalgae and their cultivation as a biofuel and alternative food source.
Directly contributing to SDGs 7 (affordable and clean energy), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 13 (climate action), this Elsevier Atlas Award winning article analyses the feasibility of powering the Americas with renewable energy by 2030.

Hazardous waste generated from the disposal of Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is driving research into a sustainable approach for treatment and recovery. The positive electrode active materials are the main targeted component, being the greatest contributor to LIBs cost. This paper studies the particle size characteristics of milled spent LIBs, and also the interaction of copper and aluminum impurities based on size, contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12.
