As Guest Editors, we would like to invite you and your colleagues to contribute either a review or an original research article to the Special Issue “Valorisation and Applications of Agri-Food Wastes and By-Products: Challenges and New Strategies for Sustainable Food Systems” to be published in the Foods journal (IF: 5.561, ISSN 2304-8158, Q1).
A large number of wastes and by-products (e.g., derived from post-harvest feedstock, animal farms and food processing) are generated annually from numerous industrial processes of the agricultural and food industry. Together with the loss of compounds that are potentially useful for beneficial purposes, their decomposition constitutes an environmental problem due to the emission of harmful greenhouse gases and the formation of leachates, among other consequences. Despite the efforts made by researchers and industry, new investigations in the field aiming to improve strategies for the valorisation and management of agri-food wastes and by-products are currently necessary. We expect to open a discussion and collect novel investigations in the field. For such aims, we propose (not exhaustively) the following themes as principal topics:
- Agri-food wastes.
- Bioactive compounds.
- Functional ingredients.
- Human health.
You may submit your manuscript now or up until the deadline on 30 January 2023.
All submissions are peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published online shortly.
Thank you very much for your consideration.
I look forward to hearing from you and welcome your contribution.
