Abstract—This research measured the eco-efficiency of Thai
growing-fishing pig farms. Eco-efficiency indicators were
developed by the previous literatures and field observation
contributed for the investigation of the potential environmental
impact in a material flow analysis. Eco-Eco-efficiency degrees
and trends at economic and environment performances for
Thai growing-fishing pig farms during 2010-2012 was
calculated. The eco-efficiency degrees and trends were assessed
by World Business Council for Sustainable Development
recommendation and Snapshot graph plot, respectively. The
results showed that the highest and lowest eco-efficiency
degrees of Thai growing-fishing pig farms were drug and
energy consumptions, respectively. The eco-efficiency of Thai
growing-fishing pig farms snapshot showed that most
eco-efficiency indicators were located in Fully-Eco-Efficiency.
However, only wastewater production indicator was located
in Haft-eco-efficiency because the growing-fishing pig farm
required the water for cleaning twice a day. Biogas production
from the growing-fishing pig farms wastewater should be
recommended for enhancing approach of eco-efficiency
Index Terms—Eco-efficiency, growing-fishing pig, farm, sustainable development, Thailand.
