Production of Microbial Secondary Metabolites from Organic Wastes and Investigation of Their Potential Applications
The reuse of organic wastes (OWs) for the production of added-value compounds is a topic of great interest, despite concerns related to cost-effective production and the environment. A large amount of OWs is released every year during by-product processing, including agro-crop processing (e.g., agro-residues, wastewater obtained from the wet processing of coffee, cassava, sugar canes, etc.) and fishery by-product processing (e.g., shrimp shells, crab shells, squid pens, and fish heads). These OWs are rich in carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and minerals. Thus, they may be utilized for various purposes. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect and highlight groundbreaking studies on the production of microbial secondary metabolites from organic wastes, and investigate their potential applications. We welcome studies using OWs to produce bioactive compounds, such as biocontrol and/or plant-prompting agents that have low-cost potential application in agriculture and novel uses in other fields (e.g., medicine, cosmetics, food, etc.).
