“FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT IN THE TRANSITION TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY” As part of the envisioned transition to a circular economy, efficient use of natural resources has become more and more important across many industries. In the food industry, many waste streams and by-product flows are increasingly considered valuable resources that can be valorized as […]

“EFFICIENT MANOEUVRING OF ELECTRIC MACHINERY IN AGRICULTURAL SCENARIOS”. When traversing through different terrains, the electric machinery power consumption is affected by the wheel-terrain interaction (among other parameters), varying the vehicle’s effort and its autonomy (from an energy point of view). In this seminar it will be presented the last results obtained for modeling the instantanoues […]

“BRAZILIAN AGRO-LOGISTICS: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE REDUCTION OF PHYSICAL LOSSES”. Several international studies indicate that global food production will need to increase about 70% to be able to feed the population by 2050. Facing limited natural resources such as arable land, water, energy and raw materials, there may be a number of difficulties for […]

“IMPACT OF SHELF LIFE ON THE TRADE-OFF BETWEEN ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL OBJECTIVES: A DAIRY CASE” Food manufacturers introduce more environmentally friendly processes to account for increasing sustainability concerns. However, these processes often go along with a reduction of product shelf life, limiting the delay of sales to future periods with higher prices. We develop a framework […]

“INSERTION OF SMALL FARMERS INTO TECHNOLOGY-ENABLED, RADID-RESPONSE FRESH FOOD SUPPLY CHAINS”. An important challenge under the new information-rich environments is creating efficient and shorter supply chains that can meet the demand for fresh fruits and vegetables at the right prices, with the right quality, with minimal waste, in spite of the perishability of these products. […]

“STOCHASTIC AND MULTI-CRITERIA MODELS IN FOREST PLANNING” Classical forest planning models consider multi-period decisions on harvesting and road building. These models are deterministic, considering expected values of relevant parameters and  usually optimize net present value. In this talk we consider uncertainty, both in market prices, and also due to climate change, expressed as variability in […]
