Do not miss the potential of agri-food residues
Several tens of millions of tonnes are thrown away every year in the European Union alone; 58.5 million according to the European Commission. About 17 % is lost in the agri-food industry during production and processing.
These agri-food residues can serve as a resource to generate energy, chemicals or components for food, feed and materials.
In this booklet, we:
- share tips for the reuse of agri-food residues
- show the potential of potato peels, grape pomace, cheese whey and brewer’s spent grain
- present 10 different value chains, which together yield 10 different products
- recommend policy implementations
