After the conference, we invited the best presenters at the 5th ICAT to extend their work and submit a paper for review to . Each of the selected papers in this edition has been double-blind peer reviewed. While the six papers are diverse in their specific topics, they all relate to energy and environment. They are all efforts to analyse and/or recommend ways that appropriate technology can impact the environment and energy utilization. All of the authors have technical backgrounds in science and engineering. They have been engaged in research and practical application of appropriate technologies at universities and/or government agencies.
