Protein Byproducts: Transformation from Environmental Burden into Value-Added Products deals with the added value of proteinaceous waste byproducts, discussing in detail the different sources of protein-rich byproducts, their extraction, recovery, and characterization. The book provides thorough insights into different protein modification techniques to extend the product portfolio using these waste byproducts.

Divided between three main sections, the book covers various feedstock resources, such as animal-derived/plant-derived proteins, marine waste-derived proteins, protein extraction and recovery methods, and related technical issues including modification and conversion technologies for the production of high value bioproducts. It contains contributions from experts in the fields of applied industrial microbiology, engineering, bioprocess technology, protein chemistry, food chemistry, agriculture, plant sciences, environmental science, and waste management, serving as a comprehensive reference for students and research scientists in the food and agriculture industries.
