Single Cell Protein Production from Waste Biomass: Review of Various Agricultural By-products
Agricultural waste constitutes for most of the manmade waste streams. Processing of
biodegradable waste materials ensures the treatment of harmful substances and allows to reduce
environmental pollution. In addition, conversion of these waste materials in value-added products
makes these recycling methods more economically viable. Single-cell protein is one of the value-added
products that can be produced by microbial fermentation of waste materials. In this review
various biodegradable agricultural by-products as substrates for production of SCP are
categorized and compared.
Single cell protein, waste biomass, agricultural by-products, resource availability, aquaculture, fish feed, fish meal.
