With ever increased food processing in the new millennia, production of agro-industrial waste has been increased tremendously. Although, these waste are rich sources of essential bioactive compounds. In developing countries, the waste materials from agro-industries can help to obtain valuable components. The objective of this manuscript is to manage industrial potato peel waste and to highlight its nutritional and industrial uses. Potato peel waste, by various procedures such as fermentation, extraction and other treatments, can ensue into the products such as bio-fuels, dietary fibre, biofertilizer, biogas, biosorbent, antioxidants and food additives. This paper enlightens the application of potato peel utilization in food and nonfood purposes for example extraction, utilization of bioactive components, biotechnological usage, livestock feed and miscellaneous use. The present article summarized the literature pertaining to the studies of the last twenty years.
