Biotreatment of Marine Crustacean and Chicken Egg Shell Waste

  • Chapter
Environmental Biotechnology

Abstract

Biotreatment leading to bioconversion of waste materials is probably the most cost-effective and certainly the most environmentally-friendly technique for managing and utilising waste. Waste materials associated with the food industry are no exception. Notable are the wastes generated by the fishing industry — fish offal, marine crustacean shell waste and the wash waters associated with fish and shellfish processing.
