Abstract: There are currently several problems that exist in the rice processing industry,including a low amount of deep processing and low resource utilization.Using a rice processing enterprise as a study case, we propose the construction of a new rice industrial chain guided by the circular economy concept and we analyzed the economic returns,ecological effectiveness,and social benefits from the extension of circular economy.This paper aims to provide beneficial information that agricultural enterprises can use to develop the circular economy method.

Key words: rice processing industry, circular economy, 3R principle, industrial chain construction
