Such actors are, on the one hand the civilian sector, owing to the environmental connotation which arises from mismanagement. On the other hand, the economic-productive sector, due to the loss of money that not using waste which required financial resources (manpower, nutrients, etc) to be produced entails. It is a well-known fact that the availability of natural resources is not unlimited and that human actions ought to be focused inexorably on making good use of them thus achieving their integral exploitation.
The concept of bioeconomy, which has recently become increasingly popular, is about incorporating a series of activities which are aimed at the creation of value from natural raw materials through a rational and sustainable use of the products, subproducts and waste that might be produced. In this context, the agro-food activity, which is vital and indispensable for the human species must pioneer the valorization of waste and, consequently, the creation of added value. Effectively, this agro-food action creates an enormous quantity of plant biomass which is underused, which is a hindrance both environmentally, given the failure to exploit a natural resource, and economically, since the non-valorization of this waste means an opportunity cost.
