Energy production and CO2 emissions are strictly connected. One of the most efficient and straightforward mitigations to the climate change is the conversion of CO2 into chemicals that may play the role of energy vectors in a carbon-based energy cycle. Contributing to SDGs 9 and 13, this article briefly illustrates and discusses the main findings that have paved the way of CO2 conversion to fuels or fuel precursors by electrochemical methods using redox catalysts that may find concrete applications.

A review of techniques used to anlyze microplastics: are they green?
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.
With the growing global environmental awareness, the development of renewable and green materials has gained increased worldwide interest. Being at the heart of current scientific research studies, renewable polymers, include natural, semisynthetic, and microbial polymers, have a scope in vast diverse applications in packaging, agriculture, medicine, and optoelectronic technological fields. Contributing to SDGs 9 and 13, this article reviews environmentally friendly processing solvents, and their corresponding applications toward an environmental sustainable life .
Fatty alcohols (FAs) have been widely studied as typical phase-change materials for their high latent heat, low undercooling, non-toxicity, and low cost in thermal energy storage applications. The thermal properties, especially the heat capacity, play a vital role in designing-related energy storage techniques. However, there are few studies on the thermal properties of FAs systematically investigated in a wide temperature region, which greatly limit their application in thermal energy storage field. In this study, the thermal properties of even-numbered FAs (C12H25OH-C18H37OH), such as thermal stability, thermal conductivity, phase transition temperature, and enthalpy have been systematically investigated using a combination of various thermal analysis and calorimetry methods, contributing to SDGs 7 and 9.
