Science Briefs

The objective of the Science Briefs, published by the Candelilla Institute, is to communicate technical and socio-economical knowledge related to the process of the Candelilla Wax, and to inform on some case studies about other natural resources from different regions, that could provide improvement models for the production process and the living conditions of the rural communities.

The publications are developed with the collaboration of Miguel Arato, who is currently studying a PhD oriented in the field of Agricultural Economics, at the Faculty of Bioengineering at the University of Ghent in Belgium.
