The processes in modern enterprises understood as structured activities designed for production, i.e., to transform all inputs into the final product, should take into account the principles of sustainable development and synergy. Enterprises should pay attention to the design of processes, taking into account new technologies that will not have a negative impact on the environment.
The changes taking place in the world are forcing enterprises to undertake innovative activities, which should be eco-friendly and effective, i.e., eco-innovative and eco-efficient. To achieve such effects, companies should also manage processes, i.e., design and implement processes that also take into account the circular economy.
This Special Issue on “Processes in Enterprises and Circular Economy Concerning Conventional Energy and Renewable Energy” aims to curate novel advances in the development and application of new technology, innovative solutions (processes, products) for enterprises operating in the new economy.
The subject of this Special Issue includes aspects of the following:
- Emissions and the reduction of CO2 emissions for vehicles, in particular taking into account methods of powering electric or hybrid vehicles (energy from hard coal, energy from RES) in the energy balance.
- Trends in transport biofuels and alternative fuels
- Human energy use in the life cycle (LCA)
- Energy consumption of food production processes, in particular, the processes of bio and eco products
