The Food-Energy-Water (FEW) nexus is seeing an explosion of new technologies, including smart technologies in agriculture and irrigation, waste minimization and valorization technologies, and interlinkages between the food-waste-water and energy systems.

These emerging FEW technologies may allow us to tackle several interlinked environmental challenges. For example, FEW technologies may have a role to play by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thus combating climate change through carbon capture. Alternatively, FEW systems can balance water and nutrient flows, thus preventing eutrophication and loss of biodiversity.

Yet, the overall sustainability benefits of these FEW technologies are not well-understood because of complex linkages across sectors and scales. New biorefinery models, resource circularity models and analytic approaches are emerging to assess the environmental pollution and resource sustainability benefits of these new technologies. Also needed are decision-support frameworks for implementing FEW technologies that consider social, environmental, and economic aspects.

This special issue invites research articles on the broad topic of technology innovation and analysis at the Food-Energy-Water Nexus that advances sustainability and resilience. This broad topic can include (but are not limited to):

  • Basic technology development research
  • Applied technology development research
  • Methods for sustainability or resilience analysis
  • Life cycle assessment
  • Cost-benefit analysis
  • Technological readiness level of FEW technologies
  • Decision-support frameworks
  • Policy analysis
