What is the outlook for biowaste?
A large amount of saffron by-products (leaves, petals, whole flowers, stamens, styles and corms) with little or no commercial value are wasted when processing the stigmas.
For this reason, the valorization of saffron by-products is considered as an environmental and economic stake for the Moroccan producers which can be a material supplement for the population.
