Project

Development of a computational tool to compare sustainability of different chains

Worldwide the demand for biomass for food, feed and biobased economy is increasing, while the amount of available land is limited. Therefore, production at sea is introduced.

There are no methods to assess the sustainability of production on the land comparable to production at sea. The goal of this project is to develop a computational tool with which the sustainability of different chains can be compared. Sustainability is quantified using Total Factor Productivity (TFP). This calculator can also demonstrate sustainability so the public opinion will be given the correct information.
