Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry, Volume 31, October 2021

Energy production and CO2 emissions are strictly connected. One of the most efficient and straightforward mitigations to the climate change is the conversion of CO2 into chemicals that may play the role of energy vectors in a carbon-based energy cycle. Contributing to SDGs 9 and 13, this article briefly illustrates and discusses the main findings that have paved the way of CO2 conversion to fuels or fuel precursors by electrochemical methods using redox catalysts that may find concrete applications.

Global warming and climate change caused by an ever-increasing accumulation of atmospheric CO2 are reaching alarming levels. In order to address this issue, significant research effort has been dedicated to the development of carbon capture processes for sequestration or utilization of CO2. This article reviews recent advances in electrochemically mediated CO2 capture and release, contributing to SDGs 9 and 13.

Read the story behind eyeWitness to Atrocities, an app developed by the International Bar Association (IBA) and LexisNexis Legal & Professional, which helps bring war criminals to justice. It’s the first app that collects, verifies, catalogues and protects images so that they can be used as evidence in a court of law while helping protect the individuals who have been brave enough to take the photos or videos.
Elsevier and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) are pleased to announce the third biennial Renewable Transformation Challenge. If you have an innovative proposal which contributes to the goal of transitioning to 100% renewable energy, submit your application for a chance to win €20,000.
To show the importance of climate action and to celebrate the more than 5-year collaboration between the Elsevier Chemistry journals department and the Elsevier Foundation, we have compiled this special issue, highlighting top chemistry content related to SDG 13 and providing information on past winners of the Green & Sustainable Chemistry Challenge.
This study aimed to optimise feature selection to improve classification accuracy of various stages in Alzheimer's disease progression.
This study aims to identify issues in patient flow on mental health units and align them with potential AI solutions, ultimately devising a model for their integration at service level. Recommendations were formulated for NHS trusts open to adopting AI patient flow enhancements.

Samuel M. Gorton, Chapter 41 - Integrated agroecological technology networks for food, bioenergy, and biomaterial production, Editor(s): Anju Dahiya, Bioenergy (Second Edition), Academic Press, 2020, Pages 767-788, ISBN 9780128154977,

This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 7 and 11 by discussing how we can create integrated ecological technologies that transform natural resources into anthropocentric goods and services, while restoring the land and reducing pollution by returning beneficial materials or energy to the ecosystem.
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.
