Description

The world population is expected to increase exponentially within the next decade, which means that the food demand will increase and so will waste production.

Covering topics that include food degradation, enzymes, and microorganisms, this publication is designed for policymakers, environmentalists, engineers, government officials, researchers, scientists, academicians, and students.
