Tomato is not only used and served as a fresh vegetable, but it is also used to produce and is consumed in the form of various processed products. Large amounts of wastes are generated annually, and the rational disposal of tomato waste represents not only a resource problem but also an environmental and economic one for the Tomato Processing Industry. The book indicates the alternative sustainable solutions for the recovery of tomato processing by-products as a source for animal feed and valuable components as well as their possible approaches for value-added utilization in energy, environmental and agricultural applications. It is mainly targeting agricultural or food engineers, food scientists and technologists, agriculturists, and other professionals who work in the food and tomato processing industry and are seeking to improve their by-products management by actively utilizing them in effective applications.
