Food Waste Management Handbook
from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Waste Management and
Co-Product Recovery in Food Processing

Volume 1
edited by Keith Waldron

Waste Management and Co-Product Recovery in Food Processing covers the latest developments in this area.

Part One of the book provides a concise introduction to the field with a particular focus on legislation and consumer interests, principle drivers of waste management.

Part Two addresses the minimisation of biowaste and the optimisation of water and energy use in food processing.

Part Three covers key technologies for co-product separation and recovery, such as supercritical fluid extraction and membrane filtration, as well as important issues to consider when recovering co-products, such as waste stabilisation and microbiological risk assessment.

Part Four offers specific examples of waste management and co-product exploitation in particular sectors such as the red meat, poultry, dairy, fish and fruit and vegetable industries.

Part Five summarizes advanced techniques, to dispose of waste products that cannot be reused, and reviews state of the art technologies for wastewater treatment.

Features:

  • Examines the optimization of manufacturing procedures to decrease waste
  • Discusses how to reduce energy and water expenditure
  • Explores methods to valorise refuse by co-product recovery
