The increased demand for processed potatoes in the form of dehydrated or frozen products has occurred concomitantly with an increased demand for treatment of the processing wastes. Although biologic decomposition and stabilization of the conventional caustic peel effluent can be accomplished by several well-established practices, a system of peeling which yields wastes of lower concentration and less liquid volume has obvious advantages. Additionally, since potato wastes are acceptable as feeds for livestock, the system devised should allow maximum recovery of these utilizable solids.
