Call for Paper: Special Issue “Advances in Compressed Fluid Technology in the Extraction, Purification or Treatment of Food By-products”

Dear Colleague,

As the Guest Editor of the Special Issue “Advances in Compressed Fluid Technology in the Extraction, Purification or Treatment of Food By-products” in Foods (ISSN 2304-8158, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/foods), I would like to invite you to contribute an article or review paper focused on processing food wastes using supercritical CO2 , sub-critical water or pressurized solvents. The term “food by-product” is taken in a broad sense and therefore includes solid and liquid streams such as vegetable wastes, residues from juice or oil extraction, wine or brewers’ spent grains, fishery and seafood by-products, waste from dairy processing, technical additives that should be recycled or post-processed for safe disposal. In addition to extraction, stabilization of by-products against pathogens or chemical degradation, drying, use of enzymes, regeneration of sorbents, fractionation will be considered.

3. Rapid publication times combined with thorough peer review. The average whole processing period from submission to publication is about 33 days.
