A novel and efficient method is described to remove the color and smell from bloodmeal (meat processing industry waste product) using peracetic acid. This method does not significantly reduce the protein molecular mass and the treated powder is suitable for use in bioplastic production, turning this low-value industry waste product into a useful material.
