Sustainable consumption and production

This book chapter advances SDGs 3, 12 and 13 by discussing the entrance of microplastics in a range of environments, including oceans, surface waters, wastewaters, soils, sediments, the atmosphere, and food.
This content contributes to Goal 13 by outlining technologies that can help reduce atmospheric emissions.
Electric vehicles (EVs) are widely regarded as the key to finally making private mobility clean, yet virtually no research is being conducted on their potential contribution to the expansion of impervious surfaces. This study aims to start a discussion on the topic by exploring three relevant issues: the impact of EVs’ operating costs on urban size, the space requirements of charging facilities, the land demand of energy production through renewables.
Bibliometric analysis on the research progress of micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) energy harvesters as a source of alternative energy, particularly for electronic equipment.
Assesses the status of energy consumption and the factors affecting biogas technology adoption among rural households in northwestern Ethiopia.

Framework integrates critical aspects of feasibility, effectiveness, & side impacts of Negative Emissions technology portfolios.
While managing the effects of urban growth represents a significant challenge, it also provides an opportunity to rethink how we plan and design our urban spaces to support sustainability, both in terms of new urban development projects and in retrofitting existing urban spaces.
Contributing to SDGs 2, 12 and 13, his review discusses the major challenges in food industry and how synthetic biology has the potential to revolutionize the future of the food. Finally, the prospects and challenges of synthetic biology for a sustainable food manufacturing are discussed.
825 food companies from 16 countries were included in this multi-country study. Maturity of a food safety system triggers the response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Staff awareness and hygiene are most important attributes combating Covid-19. Retailers are the food supply chain link mostly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Less than a half of companies have any emergency plans associated with pandemics.
This book chapter advances SDGs 13, 12 and 15 by discussing climate change and its causes and effects on water resources and implications for adaptation.
