"This new compendium volume looks the sustainable food and beverage industry from a variety of perspectives. The chapters included are broken into seven sections, which describe the following topics: an overview of food production and supply chains; the dairy industry; the meat industry; the coffee and tea industries; food and beverage waste products; food processing and packaging; concluding implications. The book begins with an examination of the key drivers of the evolution in the food supply chain and an in-depth description of food production and processing using the life cycle assessment (LCA) tool. It covers approaches to improve food production practices; sustainable food processing approaches; emerging analytical techniques for sustainable research and development; challenges associated with the use of agricultural resources to grow biofuels and bio-based products; technologies to reduce the generation of process-induced toxins; social factors that influence consumer perceptions about some of the current and emerging agri-food technologies; and the need and importance of biodiversity in maintaining sustainable human diets. The book goes on to look at sustainable food and beverage production in specific industries, including the dairy, meat, and coffee and tea industries. A report on using bones and other waste products as an renewable energy source is included. The book also provides a good summary of the integrated production and treatment biotech process, an engineering strategy for the sustainable production of renewable resources from waste organic materials. The contributors present case studies and research from around the world, offering a truly global and international perspective on this topic. The book is primarily intended for graduate and PhD students, but it will also be a valuable resource for industry professionals in the food and beverage industries."--
