Production of Bioenergy in the Framework of Circular Economy: A Sustainable Circular System in Ecuador.
Research Areas
  • Agrarian economy
Abstract: This chapter reviews and applies the principle of the circular economy to recent advances in the bioenergy production. Using Ecuador as a case study, we identify a set of production technologies for both biogas and biodiesel, that may interact in sustainable circular processes of production and by-product reuse. The main contribution of this chapter is in highlighting the synergies between different technologies of bioenergy production and waste reuse, as well as the technological requirements for implementation within a systemic approach. The example of a sustainable circular strategy in Ecuador illustrates how an integrated approach to food production, waste management and bioenergy generation can deliver multiple social, economic and environmental benefits.
