Food Industry Wastes: Assessment and Recuperation of Commodities, Second Edition presents a multidisciplinary view of the latest scientific and economic approaches to food waste management, novel technologies and treatment, their evaluation and assessment. It evaluates and synthesizes knowledge in the areas of food waste management, processing technologies, environmental assessment, and wastewater cleaning. Containing numerous case studies, this book presents food waste valorization via emerging chemical, physical, and biological methods developed for treatment and product recovery.
This new edition addresses not only recycling trends but also innovative strategies for food waste prevention. The economic assessments of food waste prevention efforts in different countries are also explored. This book illustrates the emerging environmental technologies that are suitable for the development of both sustainability of the food systems and a sustainable economy. So, this volume is a valuable resource for students and professionals including food scientists, bio/process engineers, waste managers, environmental scientists, policymakers, and food chain supervisors.
- Provides guidance on current regulations for food process waste and disposal practices
- Highlights novel developments needed in policy making for the reduction of food waste
- Raises awareness of the sustainable food waste management techniques and their appraisal through Life Cycle Assessment
- Explores options for reducing food loss and waste along the entire food supply chain.
Food scientists, food and nutrition researchers, academics, graduate and upper-level undergraduate students, professionals and researchers interested in environmental science and food engineering, technologists, process engineers, waste managers, environmental risk assessors, food chain supervisors, and policy makers
