Residues are divided into four main sub-categories: agricultural, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, and processing residues. A processing residue is a substance that is not the end product(s) that a production process directly seeks to produce. It is not a primary aim of the production process and the process has not been deliberately modified to produce it.
