Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue of Processes, “Biodegradation and Bioremediation in the Food Industry”, delves deeply into the crucial domain of employing biodegradation and bioremediation methodologies within the food industry, aiming to address pressing environmental challenges. Within this Special Issue, a spotlight is placed on groundbreaking research endeavors that harness the potential of microorganisms, enzymes, and bioactive compounds to facilitate the decomposition of waste materials and pollutants stemming from food production and packaging processes. This comprehensive exploration encompasses several key themes, including the microbial degradation of food byproducts, innovative bioremediation techniques targeted at food-related pollutants, the strategic application of enzymatic methodologies in waste management practices, the deployment of bioaugmentation strategies for optimized outcomes, the development and implications of biodegradable packaging solutions, and the critical assessment of economic and regulatory dimensions in these advancements. By converging scholarly contributions, this Special Issue not only furnishes practical insights pivotal to fostering sustainable food production protocols and effective waste management strategies, but also serves as a conduit for seamless knowledge translation between the realms of cutting-edge research and real-world industry implementation.
