Call for Papers - Special Issue in "Sustainability" (MDPI)

SI "Optimization of a Circular Bioeconomy for Agriculture and Food Industry" Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2021 Abstract: Major global problems, such as climate change, resource degradation and depletion, and environmental degradation threaten our food supply, food security, and food quality. The concept of a circular bioeconomy combines economic growth with environmental compatibility. It thus represents a framework for a sustainable structural transformation toward a modern, resource-efficient, and competitive economy based on sustainably produced renewable raw materials as well as on biobased innovations.
