Summary

During processing (packaging) of vegetables and potatoes, large proportions are sorted out due to minor damage or deviations from strict visual standards. Out-sorted products are poorly paid, and have a short shelf-life. Processing to increase the payment and shelf-life may support a more sustainable utilisation of these by-products. Conserving as silage is one option, which was studied in the bioeconomy-project "CYCLE" (2013-2017). Other approaches are also discussed.
