The continuously increasing human population has resulted in a huge demand for processed and packaged foods. As a result of this demand large amounts of water, air, electricity and fuel are consumed on a daily basis for food processing transportation and preservation purposes. The food industry contributes to the resulting increase in volume of waste produced as well as to the energy expended to do so. Using nine separate food industry categories, Waste Management for the Food industries thoroughly investigates the situation in an effort to help combat this already acute problem. The current state of environmental management systems is described showing comparisons of global legislation as well as an extensive review of commercial equipment including advantages and disadvantages per employed waste management technique. Offering a unique perspective of both the theoretical and the practical aspects of the topic, this information is important for any academic student professional and/or consultant in the food agriculture and environmental industries. Thoroughly examines the most prevalent and most polluting industries such as meat, fish, dairy, olive oil, juice and wine industries. Includes synoptical tables methods employed physicochemical or microbiological parameters altered after treatment etc. and comparative figures of the effectiveness of various methods.
