This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life Below Water and Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure by acknowledging increased rates of Arctic transit resulting from declines in sea ice, recognizing the associated risk of increasingly frequent oil spills, and proposing methods to efficiently and effectively respond to such events.

Biodegradability of Conventional Plastics: Opportunities, Challenges, and Misconceptions, Volume 1, 1 January 2022

This chapter aligns with Goal 3: Good health and well-being and Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure by discussing the applicability of biological processes for the remediation of plastics as sustainable practice and future implications of biodegradable polymers and composites in the automobile industry.

The Lancet Planetary Health, Volume 6, September 2022

This Comment supports SDG 3 and 9 by describing an ongoing study in rural Guatemala to assess interventions to reduce plastic burning in household fires, and how plastic burning is affecting air quality

Sustainable Production and Consumption, Volume 33, September 2022

This article presented a comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) study comparing alternative medical-grade and protective-device-grade mask reuse options to the conventional single-use of surgical and FFP3 masks, respectively. The study focuses on the UK, but the results and conclusions are applicable to other healthcare settings.

Sustainable Production and Consumption, Volume 33, September 2022

A system transition is required to reach greater circularity in the production and consumption of plastics and the achievement of SDG12. This paper has addressed a key gap in the literature, related to the role that data-information-knowledge play in hindering progress towards that transition.
In this study, ornamental tobacco floral nectar was found to be the source of numerous peptides, some showing antifungal or antibacterial activities. The characterization of these peptides could open new roads of research with potential applications in crop protection and pollination, public health and, more generally, biotechnologies.
