Contributing to SDGs 9, 12 and 13, this paper provides an in-depth analysis of the technologies available to reduce CO2 emissions in those sectors, and the implications for introducing consistent measures to deliver on emission reduction targets.
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.
