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 defines the new field of "Bioeconomy" as the sustainable and innovative use of biomass and biological knowledge to provide food, feed, industrial products, bioenergy and ecological services. The chapters highlight the importance of bioeconomy-related concepts in public, scientific, and political discourse. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the authors outline the dimensions of the bioeconomy as a means of achieving sustainability. The authors are ideally situated to elaborate on the

The 'bioeconomy' is the idea of an economy based on the sustainable exploitation of biological resources. Within this concept, there is increasing emphasis on issues such as climate change, depletion of natural resources and growing world food needs. The bioeconomy builds on the recognition of advances in technology, particularly in the life sciences, but at the same time covers issues such as innovation management, ecosystem services, development and governance. This book explores the development of the bioeconomy across the world

This book gathers contributions from scientists and industry representatives on achieving a sustainable bioeconomy. It also covers the social sciences, economics, business, education and the environmental sciences. There is an urgent need to optimise and maximise the use of biological resources, so that primary production and processing systems can generate more food, fibre and other bio-based products with less environmental impacts and lower greenhouse gas emissions. In other words, we need a “sustainable bioeconomy” – a term that encompasses the sustainable

This book has the purpose of providing the "state of the arts" concerning bio-economic modelling dealing with agricultural systems. In most cases, the contributions use a methodology combining the use of biophysical and economic models, in all cases, an engineering production function approach is totally or partially applied. This practice is being developed in the last years as a response to concrete policy matters: agricultural policies are increasingly combined with environmental and natural resources policies, and this reality involves the

This book provides an interdisciplinary and comprehensible introduction to bioeconomy. It thus provides basic knowledge for understanding a transformation process that will shape the 21st century and requires the integration of many disciplines and industries that have had little to do with each other up to now. We are talking about the gradual and necessary transition from the age of fossil fuels, which began around 200 years ago, to a global economy based on renewable raw materials (and renewable energies).

Biotransformation of Agricultural Waste and By-Products in the 4F Economy: The Food, Feed, Fiber, Fuel (4F) Economy presents an evaluation of plant species better exploitable for a particular transformation. As crops are already covering large parts of cultivable soils, is it is not conceivable to try to extend the cultures beyond the limit of available soils, but a further increase in productivity is not easy to obtain. The book discusses advances in technology and plants design which support the exploitation
