Banana Peels Valorization: Sustainable and Eco-friendly Applications provides a global overview of world production, physicochemical and microbiological characteristics of Banana Peels and also the various pathways for their valorization, considering the advantages, disadvantages and factors impacting on each way of valorization. The book covers the most suitable solutions for the valorization of Banana Peels, by providing content on how to reduce their negative effects in terms of the environment and human health, and how to increase their economic benefits. Each chapter deals with its sustainable application based on the sector category. Such structure helps the audience from a specific field to identify easily the specific application. Successful case study of a banana processing by-products valorization is also presented. Written by a team of interdisciplinary experts, this is the ultimate valuable resource for agricultural or food engineers who work in the banana groves and in the banana processing industry, and also for Researchers working in correlated areas of food, environmental and energy fields.
