Since the publication of the first edition of Food, Energy, and Society, the world’s natural resources have become even more diminished due to the rapid expansion of the global human population. We are faced with dwindling food supplies in certain geographic areas, increasing pressure on energy resources, and the imminent extinction of many threatened species. In light of these major issues, this third edition presents an updated and expanded analysis on the interdependency of food, energy, water, land, and biological resources. Written by internationally renowned experts, the book includes new material on livestock production and energy use, the impacts of pesticides on the environment, and the conservation of biodiversity in agricultural, forestry, and marine systems. It also compares the energy inputs of crop production in developing and developed countries, covers the agricultural and environmental issues related to water resources, and details the threat of soil erosion to food and the environment. In addition, the book explores the very timely topics of solar energy, biomass systems, and ethanol production. Offering a startling glimpse at what our planet may become, this edition shows how to achieve the necessary balance between basic human needs and environmental resources and provides potential solutions to the host of problems we face today.

Energy efficiency, environmental protection, and processing waste management continue to attract increased attention in the food processing industry.

Energy efficiency, environmental protection, and processing waste management continue to attract increased attention in the food processing industry. As with other industrial sectors, reducing costs while also reducing environmental impact and improving overall sustainability is becoming an important part of the business process. Providing practical guidance, Energy Efficiency and Management in Food Processing Facilities explores energy efficiency technologies, emerging energy efficient processes, and methods for converting food processing wastes into energy. Organized around five central themes, the book explores: Fundamentals of energy conservation, analysis, and management Energy conservation technologies as applied to the food processing industry Energy efficiency and conservations in current food processing systems Emerging systems Energy conversion technologies for utilization of food processing wastes Conservation Techniques that Improve the Bottom Line The lack of information on energy conservation and conversion technologies has been a major barrier to energy efficiency improvement and the utilization of processing wastes in the food processing industry. With coverage ranging from basic theory to traditional and alternative energy, this book provides the required skill set for the increased energy conservation and reduced consumption that will positively impact the bottom line in food processing facilities.

This publication, translated from the original Japanese, discusses global environmental problems form the viewpoint of individual ecological responsibility. Through text and humorous, yet compelling cartoons, the author brings attention to the causes and solutions of environmental problems related to excessive waste, energy consumption, toxic chemicals, and nature conservation. The proposed solutions suggest individual lifestyle changes to affect preservation of the environment. A number of tables and figures present supporting data.

Since the first edition of Food, Energy and Society was published in 1979, world energy supplies, especially fossil fuels, have dwindled as their use has soared. Supplies of the other major resources required for human life also have come under growing pressure. These include fertile land, fresh water, and biological diversity. Indeed, the very integrity of these environmental resources is threatened. For this reason, the scope of the second edition has been expanded to include discussions of land, water, energy and biological resources and their function in the food production system. This revised edition represents the cooperative efforts of many individuals and nations as they face the inevitable dilemma of how everyone can be fed, given the limits of land, water, energy, and biological resources. All of these resources support human life, and their availability will determine the quality of life for future generations.
