Contribution to Conference
Nowadays, with the expanding awareness about environmental safety, energy security and potential biomass recycling, much effort has been extended towards adding value to biowastes of agri-food industries. In this context, Tunisia was ranked among the first 10 countries in the world for the industrial transformation of tomatoes which resulted in large quantities of by-products, ranging between 20,000 and 30,000 tons per year.
