Target Audience: This book provides an expanded view for students, researchers, and professionals in the environmental field, who are interested in improving the sustainable performance of the most diverse agro-industrial segments.

Description:
This book presents an overview of interdisciplinarity linked to the application of the life cycle analysis tool. Also, through this environmental approach, it is possible to direct the practical transition of the development of production systems. Therefore, the dissemination of studies involving this tool is essential to understand the criteria and indicators of sustainability.

Divided into seven parts, the book provides the reader with a general contextualization of the life cycle assessment tool and its application guidelines. It also presents studies involving scenarios agronomic, agricultural, energy, and emerging, as well as chemical industrial processes in order to exemplify and disseminate its huge scope of application.

Finally, this book provides an expanded view for students, researchers, and professionals in the environmental field, who are interested in improving the sustainable performance of the most diverse agro-industrial segments.
