Innovation Opportunities

Waste to Worth: Potato Peel

RFI-150111

This opportunity is closed

Xinova seeks the disclosure of inventions directed to new uses or treatment methods for potato peel waste and/or its components. Waste to Worth: Potato Peel

Potato peel is about 1.5-2% by weight of a potato and accounts for about 20% of the potato’s nutrition. During the automated peeling processes, larger peel pieces are screened for animal feed or disposal, while resultant waste water is either further treated or disposed as effluent. This places a burden on waste water treatment facilities, a cost burden on the manufacturer, and wastes a potentially valuable source of nutrients, energy, starch and fiber. In some processing facilities, some starch may be recovered, however it is considered inferior as it is discolored.

New high value uses of potato peel components and improved potato peel waste processing equipment are needed. Inventions that provide an additional income source to potato processors, or reduce waste treatment costs to the processors would be beneficial.
