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.
- Covers modern as well as conventional methods of food industry waste utilization
- Discusses possible solutions to tackle food waste generation and its further utilization
- Addresses socioeconomic considerations, environmental concerns and discusses regulations related to food processing waste
Authors of this book are well-recognized researchers in their specific fields who have made important contributions to the knowledge of utilization of different food industry wastes at different levels. This book covers a wide range of breakthroughs in waste management, and is of value for students, research scholars, postdoctoral fellows and faculties pursuing careers in fields such as Bioprocess Technology, Food Technology, Food Science and Technology, Food Biotechnology, and Fermentation and Bioengineering.
