Agriculture is recognized as one of the major production sectors responsible for polluting atmospheric emissions, especially when the related intensive production systems are to be considered, within which the “ortho-floricultural-nursery” sector into a protected environment prevails.

Abstract

Agriculture is recognized as one of the major production sectors responsible for polluting atmospheric emissions, especially when the related intensive production systems are to be considered, within which the “ortho-floricultural-nursery” sector into a protected environment prevails. This is a sector represented by production processes with a high degree of intensification of cultivation that put the attention of operators to the maintenance of an adequate level of economic and environmental sustainability; i.e. satisfactory levels of income and rational management of resources and control of company waste. In this context, this paper focuses on nonhazardous special agricultural waste by developing simulations of how total economic welfare (producer and consumer) can be maintained, or minimally modified, with the economic amount of equilibrium that aforementioned negative externalities tend to reduce.
