About This Special Issue
Sustainable development can be ensured through the effective use of renewable energy sources instead of non-renewable energy sources, in a manner that avoids the depletion of natural resources. Thus, by acting responsibly towards the environment, it will be possible not only to ensure continuous growth and development, but also to ensure that future generations are able to satisfy their own needs. Recycling plays an important role in ensuring continuous sustainable development and in significantly reducing environmental pollution. For this reason, we would like to invite researchers and authors to present, for this special issue, research articles and reviews pertaining to the subject of using renewable energy and recycling for sustainable growth. The presented articles can include one or several of the subjects below.

a. Renewable Energy
b. Natural Resources
c. Sustainable Energy
d. Solar Energy
e. Passive and Active Solar Systems
f. Wind Energy
g. Biomass
h. Geothermal Energy
i. Hydrogen energy
j. Hydroelectric energy
k. Wave energy
l. Renewable energy in science education
m. Recycling
n. Solid waste
o. Recycling in science education
