New Chemical Technique Fishes Valuable Nutrients Out of Shrimp Processing Water
Pass the water, hold the shrimp: Researchers have found a way to recover nutrients left over from shrimp boiling and processing water.
It's no surprise the seafood industry requires large amounts of water for food processing. Before used water is discharged, some organic matter, including protein, is typically removed. This sludge is usually sent to a landfill or converted into biogas, which results in the valuable nutrients it contains being lost from the food chain. Researchers report in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering they've ...
