Central America: fungal fermentation of coffee waste



Central America: fungal fermentation of coffee waste



Appropriate technology for development: A discussion and case histories: 329-342



The programme for converting agro industrial waste into animal protein supplements began as a NASA supported project in 1969. Two pilot projects in Guatemala and El Salvador which operate to produce protein from fungal fermentation of coffee waste are described. The cultivation of fungi on the coffee pulp juice represents a useful technological advance for LDCs.
