Introduction of Waste-Free Production in the Livestock Sector of a Region as a Condition for Creating a Closed Production Cycle

Keywords: waste-free production, competitiveness, profitability, secondary raw materials, by-products, priority industries, deep processing, industry environment, growth vectors, closed production cycle

The relevance of this article is due to the lack of systemic knowledge in the field of implementing waste-free technological processes that can not only put right a virtually closed production cycle, but significantly increase the competitiveness of regional enterprises as well. Based on this, the purpose of the study is to identify and evaluate the conditions for the use of new technologies and processes that make it possible to create a waste-free production and a closed cycle in the region's agro-industrial complex, as well as to justify the advantages that regional producers will receive. In the livestock sector of the Chuvash Republic, from 50 to 90 thousand tons of secondary raw materials are produced annually, of which less than half is subjected to further processing. In this situation, the profitability of producers can be improved by using new technologies in the process of butchering cattle and processing secondary raw materials. This area is the most flexible in terms of using resources that ensure recycling of resources, since most of the agricultural waste is based on organic products. Secondary waste can be disposed of, but the manufacturer will not receive additional profit by spending money on recycling. It is established that the transfer of existing technologies to waste-free production and the creation of a closed cycle require solving a complex of rather complex technological, systemic and organizational tasks. It is necessary to increase production capacity, automate production processes, achieve symbiosis of energy with technology, effectively use the energy of chemical transformations, and ensure successful marketing of new products. The study uses methods of industry analysis, competitive environment analysis, and value chain analysis. The scientific novelty of the study is that the obtained knowledge will enable to give a comprehensive assessment of the activities performed by agricultural producers in the conditions of waste-free technologies introduction.
