Valorization of wastes and byproducts has become a desirable solution for efficient management of voluminous wastes generated n various industries. This is especially true for the food industry; in fact, often its by-products contain high concentrations of compounds with interesting properties, with many possible uses. In short the concept is “recycling” that makes waste a wealth”. It is significant for the urban and rural sectors towards adopting innovative techniques for different purposes viz., to manage wastes and generate income through different recycling methods. Convinced recycling methods were very much confined to rural areas in earlier days. However, in the recent days there has been much concern from Research and Development Centers to transfer recycling techniques to small and subsistence rural communities for socioeconomic development in increasing farm and animal production
