Bio-based aerogels with customizable porosities and functionalities constitute a significant potential for CO2 capture. Contributing to SGDs 7, 9 and 13, this article discusses the recent developments in the synthesis of bio-based aerogels and their application in CO2 capture.
The process industries have been facing ever increasing pressure in the monitoring and control of gaseous pollutants such as volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants. With increasingly stringent regulations and laws, emission management may need to go beyond the traditional leak detection and repair and continuous emissions monitoring system approaches to manage potential emission events. Contributing to SDGs 9 and 13, this article discusses how alternative monitoring technologies, such as optical and remote sensing instruments and wireless sensors, can monitor emissions from a specific equipment/area/unit/plant in a timely manner. Smart integration of process data and emission data is a key step to achieve operational excellence.

This chapter supports SDGs 2, 9 and 12 by discussing the critical role that polymeric materials play in terms of food packaging - increasing responsible consumption and sustainability, supporting transport of food, and reducing food waste. The chapter also highlights the latest developments in bio-based/biodegradable food packaging which offers a more sustainable route than traditional synthetic plastic food packaging.
This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.
