Value Addition in Agri-Food Industry Waste through Enzyme Technology, Volume Three explores advances in the production of high value-added products from the food industrial or agricultural waste/residues by using enzyme technology. Waste materials used in hydrogen production are categorized as agricultural waste, municipal waste, industrial waste, and other hazardous wastes. Biohydrogen production from wastes materials opened a new opportunity for the widespread use of everlasting renewable energy source. The book provides advances on value-addition to waste materials and includes utilization of industrial, agricultural and municipal waste for its bioconversion using enzyme technology. This book brings together the novel sources and technologies regarding value added products formation from specific waste materials making it an essential reference to professionals, scientists and academics in the agri-food and other related industries.

Key Features

  • Provides Biotechnological tools in value addition of waste for the agri-food industry
  • Presents novel and eco-friendly alternative-processes to produce value added products by food waste utilization
  • Discusses valuable molecules from agriculture and food industry residues as a future sustainable solution to improve public health and protect the environment


Food scientists, technologists, ingredients suppliers, microbiologists, quality assurance personnel, food analysis professionals, chemists, biotechnologists along with academic and research scholars doing research in various related -sectors; scientists along with research scholars working in enzymology, bioengineering, biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, environmental science, food science, waste management and biotech industries
