Cathode-healing™ is a direct recycling method that restores structure and functionality to well-used lithium-ion cathodes. The study shows restoration of two EV-relevant chemistries: NCM 523 and NCM 622. Full cells composed of recycled material demonstrate lifetime capability on par with baseline material. The technical feasibility and low-cost of cathode-healing™ enables sustainability in the electric vehicle and energy storage industries, addressing SDGs 7, 9 and 12.

Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this paper explores the possibility for safe discharge of cells using different salt solutions. Corrosion of the cell terminals was limited with bicarbonate and hydrogen phosphate salts. These salts shows a marked improvement in safety when compared to sodium chloride brine discharge, where the cells are compromised within minutes.
This book chapter addresses goals 9, 12 and 15 by looking at how green nanotechnology can facilitate sustainable methods leading to reduced environmental impacts, improved conservation, and the protection of resources and human health.

This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.
This study compares different microplastic sampling methods for water, sediment and biota. This supports SDGs 9.5 (enhanced scientific research) 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).
Waste multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs), containing BaTiO3, Ag, Pd, Ni, and Sn etc., and are a valuable secondary resource. The existing recycling process has great challenges when considering the environmentally friendly and efficient separation and recovery of resources. Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this study demonstrates a simple and sustainable process to convert MLCCs into high value-added and efficient photocatalysts, which promises significant benefits for waste utilisation and environmental protection.
This research directly contributes to SDG 3 (good health and wellbeing) and 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure). This paper presents and tests a potential solution for providing refrigerated storage of vital medical supplies to rural communities without connection to electrical grids.
