Abstract null null Continuous increase in CO2 emissions results in global warming, thus causing harm to human health and ecosystem. Although many studies investigated the impacts of CO2, how to quantify and analyze them in different regions is a key problem that needs to be solved. Based on the popular ReCiPe 2016 model for life cycle assessment, ReCiPe-Carbon-in-China (RC) model, an evaluation model suitable for quantifying the harm caused by CO2 in China, was established. In RC model, the impa...

Abstract null null In discourses around sustainability, increasing eco-efficiency through technological developments are highly popular as they promise the continuation of business-as-usual and appeal to economic actors whose primary motivation is to follow the paths of economic growth. Dominant narratives and visions about the bioeconomy also fit into this line of thinking by giving a central role to technological problem solving and decoupling, the opportunities of sustaining economic growth a...

Abstract null null A growing demand for food products from limited arable land has meant that paddy fields have been developed to provide both grain and aquatic products. China has the world's largest aquaculture area of crayfish, of which ∼86% is in the form of rice-crayfish coculture. Here, we use a life cycle assessment to evaluate and compare the environmental impacts of three farming systems: rice monoculture, crayfish monoculture, and rice-crayfish coculture. Two functional units were used...

Abstract null null Mitigation of global warming, energy security and industrial competitiveness urge the energy-intensive pulp and paper industry (PPI) to transform energy use practices. This study investigates how the PPI has responded to the need for the energy transition in the 2000s. Finland and Sweden as forerunners of energy-efficient operation and decarbonization of the PPI are used as target countries. Understanding of changes in energy consumption is complemented using decomposition ana...

Abstract null null Information and communication technologies are recognised to be sufficiently mature to support traceability for reusable packaging at large scale, however, issues of data management, data integration, trust and collaboration in this complex ecosystem remain under-explored. We suggest that Digital Passports and mandatory reporting could provide a way to audit and incentivise reuse of packaging, allowing governments to focus on prevention and framing packaging as an asset, rathe...

Countries around the world are devising and implementing bioeconomy strategies to initiate transformation towards sustainable futures. Modern concepts of bioeconomy extend beyond bio-based energy provision and include: (1) the substitution of fossil resource-based inputs to various productive sectors, such as the chemical industry and the construction sector, (2) more efficient, including new and cascading uses of biomass, and (3) a low bulk, but high-value biologisation of processes in agro-foo...

Abstract null null In recent years, a dramatic increase in Alternative Agri-Food Networks (AAFNs) has been interpreted by experts of the sector as triggered by innovative food supply chains capable to reconnect producers with consumers. Simultaneously, the worldwide growth of consumers’ initiatives towards AAFNs is reducing the distance with producers shortening the supply chain and enhancing its value added. Examples of these consumers’ experiences have been reported in Japan, Europe, the USA, ...

Abstract null null With the growing severe challenges of the climate change, improving low-carbon technical efficiency (LTE) is considered as the most important way to facilitate the low-carbon development. Whether or not China's carbon emission trading (CET) can facilitate the LTE deserves deep exploration. Through the introduction of a more scientific semi-disposability assumption for undesirable output, this paper first calculates China's provincial LTE based on a non-radial and non-oriented ...

Abstract null null The negative impacts caused by current industrial meat production challenge industry actors to transform meat production towards more sustainable practices. However, despite the necessity for change and the availability of various sustainability solutions, transformational shifts have failed to materialize, so far. This study applies and extends the Kollmuss-Agyeman model of pro-environmental behavior to the context of producers and analyzes their perceived barriers to the tra...
