    Because of its high Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and sheer volume, waste from food processing has significant potential to pollute land, water, and air. Both environmentally and economically, it is important to properly treat food processing wastes including the recovery of valuable products.


    Food Processing Waste and Utilization: Tackling Pollution and Enhancing Product Recovery discusses possible solutions to tackle food waste generation and its further utilization. It addresses process engineering economics, microbiology of waste recycling, biochemical and nutritional aspects of food waste processing. The book includes detailed guidance and case studies about utilization/valorization of food waste.


    Key Features

    • Covers modern as well as conventional methods of food industry waste utilization
    • Discusses possible solutions to tackle food waste generation and its further utilization
