The food processing industry has been the target of considerable technological innovation, particularly during the past two decades. This study attempts to examine various aspects of the agro-food sector in the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) countries and to enhance the promotion of environmentally sound technologies (EST).

Environmentally sound technologies in the context of pollution are "process and product technologies" that generate low or no waste, for the prevention of pollution.

They also cover "end of the pipe" technologies for treatment of pollution after it has been generated. Environmentally sound technologies are not just individual technologies. Application of environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) is a way to sustainable development.

“Environmentally sound” is a relative term however. Furthermore, environmental soundness is not an attribute of technology by itself but of technology in the particular socio-ecological context in which it is intended to be applied.

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.

Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.

Wastewater reuse through aquaculture It provides food, employment and income for millions of people. Research over the past three decades has provided a scientific understanding of how these systems function.
