Special Issue Information
Wastes and byproducts from food and agricultural facilities, if not managed properly, present a serious global problem. Conventional disposal treatments such as landfilling and incineration are inefficient at eliminating or reducing these products’ effect on environment because they are rich in organic compounds, which cause the generation of toxic gases. On the other hand, food- and agricultural-activity-based wastes and byproducts are rich in valuable nutritional components such as carbohydrates, oils, proteins, vitamins and phenolics. Transforming them into useful products not only reduces their environmental hazards, but also leads to the acquisition of value-added products for food and other industries. Many routes are taken to add value to these compounds, such as fortification of foods, purification of individual useful compounds, use of substrates for microbial fermentation processes and utilization as alternative bioenergy sources. This Special Issue welcomes submissions of the latest works, reviews and short communications focused on value-added byproducts and wastes from meat, poultry and agricultural product processing.
