Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation


A Comprehensive Guide to Solar Energy Systems With Special Focus on Photovoltaic Systems, 2018, Pages 81-107.

This chapter advances goals 9 and 7 by discussing sustainable solar energy generation and storage for rural sub-Saharan Africa in the context of the ‘circular economy’.
This chapter contributes to goals 7 and 9 by looking in-depthly at the various structures of nanocomposaite proton exchange membranes (PEMs) using carbon nanotubes, graphene, and graphene oxide as fillers.
To advance goals 7 and 9, this chapter examines the properties of Polyaniline-Graphene Nanocomposite and considers its suitability as an energy storage material.
This chapter addresses goals 6 and 9 by discussing the recent advances of carbon-based nanomaterials and nanocomposite membranes for effecctive treatment of emulsified oil/water mixtures.
Addressing SDG 7, this chapter discusses the need to integrate the various renewable energy technologies to meet the ever-increasing demand for energy in West Africa. At the same time it makes connections with SDG 9.

Challenges and Opportunities in Urban Public Transportation, Chapter 7, 2017, Pages 95–107

Green innovations will be significant in reducing climate change impacts and contributing to goals 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and 13 (climate action). This chapter considers a number of sustainable and innovative transport and infrastructure options to support these goals.

Sustainable Power Technologies and Infrastructure, Chapter 10, 2016, Pages 355–377

This chapter advances both goals 7 (affordable and clean energy) and 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) through its discussion of incentives and tariffs that encourage sustainable infrastructure, including renewable energy.
Research, development and commercialisation are three important stages in pharmaceuticals and to advancing goal 3. This chapter explores the role of biophysical characterisation in this process.
