Ecological modernization (ecological technology) policies and practices, and sustainable supply chains influence the energy-water-food nexus from a commerce and industry perspective. The authors of this paper use a biosolids case study to exemplify the complexities and interactions of these four thematic perspectives: the energy-water-food nexus, transdisciplinarity, ecological modernization, and sustainable supply chains to identify a series of research opportunities.
