The processing and conversion of auxiliary products, waste and agricultural waste and reuse of them in the production cycle is a suitable solution for the economic use of these types of products for medical, industrial, agricultural, or related industries. Every year, a large portion of agricultural and horticultural products in the country are lost from planting to supply to consumer markets, or during processing. It is estimated that in Iran, on average, about 100 million tons of agricultural and garden products are produced each year, of which about 20-30 percent, equivalent to 20 to 30 million tons, are waste and waste. Recycling these waste and wastes could result in the return of these materials to the economic cycle of the country. With the proper planning for the development and support of the agricultural and agricultural conversion and complementary industries, the voluminous amounts of these wastes and wastes of various stages, which have caused irreparable losses to farmers and the economy of the country, have become value added. In this article, the types of wastes of agricultural origin are studied and finally, tea waste and its applications in Iran are briefly discussed.
