Production in new areas

Technologies that enable production activities to be initiated or resumed in areas that were either previously considered unsuitable due to a lack of adequate technologies. Or where traditional systems are no longer competitive. Besides the economic impact, the table includes the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and social and environmental impact indices of the technologies, which can range from -15 to +15, obtained in accordance with the perception of a sample of producers that adopted each technology.
