MORALES APAZA, Daniela Nicole; CONDORI CHOQUE, Alejandra  and  TORREZ TORREZ, Diego Alejandro. Application of the Circular Economy Through the Maximum Use of the Pineapple (Ananas comosus). RevActaNova. [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.1, pp.42-60. ISSN 1683-0789.

Nowadays, most of the productive processes are manufactured under the trend of a linear economy, it means, a disposable economy. In effect, in today's industry waste is generated that is not recycled or reused, generating environmental damage. And when analyzing the composition of the garbage generated, it can be observed that more than half is of organic origin, therefore, this shows us that the garbage we generate can be reused or recycled especially if it is agro-industrial waste. The present work is based on the design of products through the components of the Ananas comosus, through a new alternative, which is the Circular Economy. With the aim of generating products, which consist of the production of bioethanol from the heart of the fruit, natural fiber from the crown leaves, paper from the peels and, finally, from the pulp to obtain jam. Moreover, an analysis of the environmental and economic impact was made to stablish the sustainability of the process. All the products mentioned were made following the trend of a circular economy and thus being able to demonstrate that it is possible to change from a system based on a linear economy to a circular one.

Keywords : Circular Economy; Ananas comosus; Bioethanol; Natural Fiber; Marmalade; Paper.
