The transformation of cassava peels into animal feed ingredients has potential for Africa to create new products (12 million tons of safe and hygienic feed ingredients with two-thirds the energy value of maize and worth US$1.8 billion annually); lead to a new industry in the cassava value chain (that employs 500,000 persons annually, 80% women); reduce competition between animal and human for cereals (releasing eight million tons of cereals from livestock industry); and cleaning up the environment.
