Resumen

CUNICO, Eliana; CIRANI, Claudia Brito Silva; LOPES, Evandro Luiz  y  JABBOUR, Charbel José Chiapetta. Eco-innovation and technological cooperation in cassava processing companies: structural equation modeling. Rev. Adm. (São Paulo) [online]. 2017, vol.52, n.1, pp.36-46. ISSN 1984-6142.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rausp.2016.09.006.

The generation of wealth, sustained by productive activities of agro-industries, leads to the production of wastes and uses natural resources, interfering in the environmental pillar of sustainability. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether cassava processing companies generate eco-innovations by means of technological cooperation, and the degree of participation of agents in these interactions. The quantitative method used the structural equation modeling for data analyses. The results indicated a relationship between technological cooperation and the generation of eco-innovation. The model developed showed the significance between variables and exposed the main aspects that generate eco-innovation from technological cooperation. A cooperation process allows a reduction in the burning of fossil fuels, reducing the emission of methane gas, which aggravates the greenhouse effect, also reducing odor, and ultimately, providing financial gains to agribusiness.

Palabras clave : Structural equation modeling; Agro-industry; Cleaner production; Technological cooperation.
