This paper presents a short overview of some of the more current advances related to the productions of green energy and products; to environmentally friendly, healthier and safer technologies and processes; advances in CO capturing, storage, and recycling; and novel methods for sustainability assessment in decision-making. The presented innovative research and development represents small, yet important parts of ongoing critical activities brought about to master one of the more significant challenges of our society-reversing the perilous trends related to environmental destruction. It is a further development of the issues overviewed by Klemeš and Varbanov (Clean Technol Environ Policy 15(3):417-422, ) previously. The overviewed papers present an important contribution to cleaner production and environmental policy.
