Thank you for your patience.

AgricultureThe agribusiness and food production sectors are typically resource intensive and present opportunity for operating efficiency improvements. Environmental issues during the operational phase of various types of agribusiness and food production primarily include the following:

  • Wastewater and water management
  • Air emissions
  • Solid waste and by-products
  • Land use management
  • Crop and grain storage
  • Environmental impact throughout the supply chain

The agribusiness and food production sectors have numerous opportunities for cost-savings and efficiency throughout the production process. An analysis of what areas of the operations could be improved to generate savings and higher efficiency can be determined by exploring the following:

  • Increase water recycling and reuse and reduce water consumption
  • Increase cogeneration capacity
  • Increase energy from renewable sources
  • Improve waste heat recovery, steam efficiency or combustion efficiency
  • Responsibly managed biofuels from organic by-products (e.g. sugar cane, corn and methane from manure) for energy
  • Carbon credits sales
  • Transportation – increase use of efficient vehicles such as hybrids or electric
  • Greening of supply chain by addressing resource efficiencies of suppliers
