Abstract The effectiveness of chitosan for treatment of various food processing wastes has been investigated. Results have shown chitosan to be an effective coagulating agent for reduction of suspended solids in processing wastes from vegetable, poultry, and egg breaking plants. It has been tested also on cheese whey, seafood wastes, meat wastes, and activated sludge. Chitosan has been particularly effective with protein-containing wastes. Recovery of the coagulated by-products obtained by treatment with chitosan and utilization of these by-products in animal feeds is a potential option for treatment of concentrated wastes from food processing plants. This paper reports results of pilot-scale testing of chitosan for coagulation and centrifugal recovery of activated sludge at a brewery and at a vegetable cannery. The results of a preliminary study on the physiological effects of chitosan in rat diets are presented.
