Making the most of Africa's biowaste

Cassava peel, sugar cane vinasse and overripe bananas - residues such as these may be known as biowaste, but that doesn't mean they're necessarily wasted. An EU-funded project identified sources and current uses of such materials in five African countries and proposed quick, simple ways of processing them into products with higher added value.
