Analyser la durabilité du développement de valorisations non alimentaires d'agro-ressources.

Abstract : This thesis is about our analysis of the activities of the French competitiveness cluster "Industrie et Agro-Ressources" (IAR) with regard to the different stakes of sustainable development. Established in 2005 in the Picardie and Champagne-Ardenne regions, this cluster supports innovative valorisation projects of agricultural resources by industry. Our approach is based on an analysis of the challenges that sustainable development aims to solve, with a particular focus on the case of the agriculture and agro-industries. We also use ideas and concepts from several types of sustainability analysis methodologies, including the construction and use of sustainable development indicators. This work resulted in the development of IDDAgro, a decision support system dedicated to the evaluation of the sustainability of projects supported by the IAR cluster. One backbone of this set of sustainable development indicators is the assessment of the potential impacts of agroindustrial projects life cycles. Our approach was validated by applying the IDDAgro tool to real life projects. Limited access to information necessary for sustainability assessments was the main obstacle in this research. It prevented the planned application of our approach to study the ethanol production of one of the IAR cluster's partners, for which a literature study had been carried out. All these results finally enabled us to develop and present concrete suggestions to the IAR cluster. They aim at improving the integration of sustainable development stakes in its activities.
