GLRPPR Sector Resource: Food Processing Residual Management Manual

Title:
Food Processing Residual Management Manual

Abstract:
Incidental residual materials are necessary consequences of processing agricultural commodities. Food processing residuals (FPRs), once inexpensively dumped at local landfills, now generate a variety of concerns. Environmental protection standards are becoming more stringent, and disposal costs continue to escalate. Therefore, we need to take a new look at alternatives -- FPRs must be minimized and recycled. The objective of the Food Processing Residual Management Manual is to provide a framework for developing FPR source reduction, recycling, and disposal programs through the FPR utilization and disposal hierarchy. The main emphasis is on source reduction and recycling. FPR disposal (e.g., landfilling) is viewed only as a last resort when no practical, cost effective beneficial use can be found.
