Food industries are now turning meat left-over into high-protein content ingredients for food supplements, or to be added to processed food. But a EU-wide regulation covering them is still lacking.
A new way of valuing ecosystem services, incorporating the local perspective, is the driving force behind a project assessing aquatic ecosystems in highland areas of Asia
Most of us know we should live in a more environmentally sustainable way. But it does not happen because we do not really feel involved
Eating insects could bring many benefits, as they are rich in proteins and bring nutrients that could help balance diet in both food and feed
As policy for European seas moves towards an ecosystem approach in an effort to achieve environmental sustainability, there is resistance to this shift
A new research project helps agro-food sector small and medium size enterprises, such as bakeries and breweries, improve their environmental sustainability
Biogas-based energy could solve both the environmental concern of agricultural waste and reduce dependency of fossil fuels, particularly in Eastern Europe, albeit at a steep production cost
The Arctic represents a unique environment that can tell scientists a great deal about air pollution mechanisms, due to the effect of climate change
Neonicotinoids are under intense scrutiny. But a ban of a broad variety of pesticides may be required to protect bees, humans and the environment.
Land use planning and management now has all the scientific tools required for decisions making. But scientists have yet to have an opportunity to collaborate with local authorities to implement them.
Exposure to sub-lethal doses of neonicotinoids may have a long-term effect on bees. One of Italy’s top bee researchers recommends a ban on insecticide-coated seeds and in reintroducing rotating cultures against pests invasion.
Research attempts to balance more efficient uptake during cows’ digestion of nitrogen feed fertiliser to help reduce the level of cattles’ flatulences responsible for generating methane, a greenhouse gas
Reusing the by-products of fruit and cereal processing could help promote the sustainability of the food industry, as long as its overall environmental fingerprint is clearly evaluated
An additive for oxygen-based processing of sludge may be useful in specific cases in lowering the environmental impact of waste water treatment for the meat and dairy industries
New droughts forecasting models could help mitigate their consequences on African countries.
