Bio economy and Agri production

Bio-economy and Agri-Production: Concepts and Evidence bridges the knowledge gap on sustainability and bio-economy aspects of agri-production over the last decade. It complements traditional aspects on the specific topic with advanced engineering and ICT approaches that have been recently applied in agri-business (e.g. knowledge-based agriculture) under the prism of sustainability and circular economy principles. Topics cover the circular economy in agri-business, lifecycle thinking, lean management, agri-chains, green production and waste management, and more. The book approaches aspects of sustainable bio-economy in agriculture in a holistic way, contributing to the development of integrated agricultural systems. Based on topics presented at the XXXVIII CIOSTA and CIGR V International Conference, and supplemented by targeted invited articles of key-scientists, this book recognizes that as technology advances, agricultural production management practices are now being called upon to address the need for sustainability in the bio-economy. Complements traditional aspects on specific topics with advanced engineering and ICT approaches Focuses on responsible management practices to protect the environment while producing needed resources Provides real-world insights into transitioning practices

This book addresses the underexposed political dimensions of bioeconomy promotion. Who wins and who loses? How are institutions being shaped, and by whom? Drawing from experiences since the earlier days of biofuels promotion, it explores in unprecedented detail the global drive away from fossil fuels and towards a biomass-based economy. Multipurpose agriculture gains ever more traction as countries create new bio-based value chains – or, rather, value webs. Governance, in this regard, proves to be key for steering developments towards inclusive

Abstract: Assurance of sustainability is a crucial feature for the development and comparison of regions. Currently, there is no universal sustainability assessment methodology for the integrated assessment of regional development and the possibilities of future improvement. The main objective of this thesis was to conceptualize and methodologically develop Regional Sustainability Assessment Methodology (RSAM), which would reflect the relative state of regional development through the analysis of multiple resources use by regional communities. Developed RSAM is based on adapted Input-Output Table
