Despite the fact that China's apple industry is heavily dependent on excessive inputs of fertilizer, water, and pesticides (FWP), there is little information available that systematically assesses the environmental effects, potential for mitigation, and economic advantages of China's apple production systems. Based on survey data from 847 farmers, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was undertaken in this study to clarify environmental risks and mitigation potentials of rainfed and irrigated apple production systems on China's Loess Plateau.
Despite the fact that China's apple industry is heavily dependent on excessive inputs of fertilizer, water, and pesticides (FWP), there is little information available that systematically assesses the environmental effects, potential for mitigation, and economic advantages of China's apple production systems. Based on survey data from 847 farmers, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was undertaken in this study to clarify environmental risks and mitigation potentials of rain-fed and irrigated apple production systems on China's Loess Plateau. At the same time, economic benefits were examined. Compared to rain-fed orchards, irrigated orchards caused more severe environmental risks related to energy depletion (ED), global warming potential (GWP), and acidification potential (AP), whereas the opposite was true for eutrophication potential (EP), human toxicity potential (HTP), aquatic toxicity potential (ATP), and soil toxicity potential (STP). ED and GWP occurred primarily in the agricultural material stage, while AP, EP, HTP, ATP, and STP occurred mostly in the orchard management stage .
Climate change-related environmental problems like greenhouse gas emissions are connected to food value chains. The future consequences of climate change are anticipated to have an impact on the existence of chemical and microbiological dangers along food value chains. To address the hazards to food safety, it is necessary to look at environmentally friendly solutions to this problem. It is vital to adopt approaches and/or instruments that reduce the risk to food safety under climate change conditions as well as the impact of food value chains to climate change .
Most people agree that one of the most important methods for creating an agricultural system that is favorable to the environment is to maximize resource usage efficiency. Despite the fact that there have been several research on the specific subject of resource use efficiency or environmental impacts, little is known about the spatially-explicit holistic evaluation of the potentials in improving resource use efficiency and mitigating environmental impacts. This study also examined their potential for improvement in comparison to both the domestically excellent province level (DEPL) and the globally excellent country level, and proposed a comprehensive assessment framework to estimate resource use efficiency and its environmental impacts in the rice-production system at a county level (GECL) .
The primary renewable energy source in the world is hydropower, which has a number of advantages including flexibility and water storage but also the potential to have substantial environmental effects. As a result, in order to help the attainment of the Green Deal targets, sustainable hydropower must strike a balance between the production of electricity, effects on ecosystems, and benefits to society. In particular in the European Union (EU), the adoption of digital, information, communication, and control (DICC) technologies is developing as a successful strategy to assist such a trade-off, supporting both the green and the digital transformations. In this study, we demonstrate how DICC can promote the environmental integration of hydropower into the following Earth spheres: hydrosphere (for example, water quality and quantity, hydropeaking, environmental flow), biosphere (for example, riparian vegetation, fish habitat), and geosphere (for example, climate change) while mitigating impacts coming from the anthroposphere .
Offshore oil and gas exploration, drilling, production, and operation have a number of negative effects on the environment. To reduce impacts and consequences, it is crucial to manage and control emissions, discharges, and disposal. One of the biggest dangers to the marine ecosystem is the effect that drilling and dredging operations have on the marine environment. The chapter focuses on the need of risk management and business continuity in order to prevent threats to project safety and investment growth. The emphasis is on using the risk management strategy as a road map to achieve regulatory compliance. The main benefits of thorough HSE and risk management systems are outlined. The chapter examines the quality and regulatory requirements for generated water and ballast water effluent. The KPIs are shown together with the actions needed to carry out additional analysis .
