Detailed information and data are presented regarding food and non-food residuals generated in the processing of canned and frozen fruits, vegetables, specialty items, sea foods, pickles, and dehydrated fruits and vegetables. The industry is discussed in general, and processing procedures for 28 major commodities are outlined. The quantities of residuals, in-plant handling methods, on-site storage facilities, disposal methods, and by-products are described. Environmental problems associated with solid waste management and costs incurred in handling, treatment, and disposal are enumerated. Alternative processes and technological changes that affect waste generation are discussed. (Author)
