Abstract from DBPedia
    A 'renewable resource' is an organic natural resource which can replenish to overcome usage and consumption, either through biological reproduction or other naturally recurring processes in a finite amount of time. Renewable resources are a part of Earth's natural environment and the largest components of its ecosphere. A positive life cycle assessment is a key indicator of a resource's sustainability. Definitions of renewable: resources may also include agricultural production, as in sustainable agriculture and to an extent water resources. In 1962 Paul Alfred Weiss defined Renewable Resources as: "The total range of living organisms providing man with food, fibres, drugs, etc...". Another type of renewable resources is renewable energy resources. Common sources of renewable energy include solar, geothermal and wind power, which are all categorised as renewable resources.

    再生可能資源(さいせいかのうしげん)とは、自然のプロセスにより、人間などの利用速度以上に補給される天然資源のことである。 太陽光線、潮汐、風といった永続的な資源は、利用可能量以上に使用してしまう危険はない。一方で再生可能資源には、酸素、淡水、木材、バイオマスも含まれている。しかし、これらは環境の補給能力以上に使用すれば再生不可能燃料となりうる。例えば地下水は、持続可能な使用量以上に使用することがありうる。
