The challenge of the future is the adequate production of food for an ever increasing population utilizing an ever decreasing area of arable land and the keeping of food production in harmony with the environment. Modern processing techniques produce significant amounts of by-products that are now being used as fertilizer or just dumped creating pollution problems. As the cost for handling waste increases, a point may be reached where it becomes economically feasible to recover from the waste potentially edible oils and protein. Often the wastes that still contain potentially recoverable oil and protein are produced in areas where these food components are in short supply. The recovery of edible oil from by-products of food processing increases the source of this edible commodity and turns potential pollutants, which may be costly to control, into useful cash producing commodities.
