Book Description

This book covers sustainable approaches for industrial transformation pertaining to valorization of agro-industrial byproducts. Divided into four sections, it starts with information about the agro/food industry and its byproducts, including their characterization, followed by different green technologies (principle, process strategies and extraction of bioactive compounds) applied for the management of agro industry byproducts. It further explains biotechnological interventions involved in the value addition of these byproducts. Various regulatory and environmental concerns related to by-product management along with biorefinery concept and future strategies are provided as well.


  • Provides extensive coverage of agro-industrial by products and their environmental impact
  • Details production of value-added products from agro-industrial waste
  • Describes environmental legislations and future strategies
  • Presents multidisciplinary approaches from fundamental to applied and addresses the biorefinery and circular economy
  • Includes innovative approaches and future strategies for management of agro-industrial waste

This book is aimed at researchers, graduate students and professionals in food science/food engineering, bioprocessing/biofuels/bioproducts/biochemicals and agriculture, bioeconomy, food waste processing, post-harvest processing, and waste management.
