As the quantity of generated waste increases in the food and organic processing sector, alternative disposal methods have been 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 extends our initiative on the development of a framework for modeling organic waste stream reprocessing in order to provide industry associates with an effective method in determining the best value-added utilization avenue for their waste. To demonstrate its implementation, a case study on corn byproduct reprocessing is analyzed through our proposed computational model and algorithm.
