Paper Abstract

Alternative disposal methods for food and other organic manufacturing waste streams are increasingly being investigated. Direct shipping, blending, extrusion, pelleting, and drying are commonly used to produce finished human food, animal feed, industrial products, and components ready for further manufacture. This paper discusses a new initiative whose goal is to develop a computer model based on analytical methods used for disassembly planning and demanufacturing modeling, but applied to organic processing waste streams. Upon completion, the simulation model discussed here will be used to analyze various liquid, sludge, and solid byproduct streams in order to determine optimal reprocessing avenues for specific manufacturing firms.
