The amount of waste and by-products of the potato industry is estimated to be around 12-20% of their total production volume. Potato processing generates waste in the form of peels, pulp and rejects. Potato peels, pulp and unmarketable potatoes can further be processed in starch plants, incorporated into animal feed formulations, or turned into ethanol. Thus the attempts to up-cycle the industrial potato waste will provide additional feed options for the livestock and make potato growing and processing more economical
