UTILIZATION OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES WASTE PEELS AS A POTENTIAL BIOMASS: A GREEN APPROACH TOWARDS ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
ABHINAV SRIVASTAVA, DENZIL JOHN GODIN
Fruits and vegetables are the most consumed products for sustenance as well as medicinal purposes amongst the horticultural crops. Huge consumption leads in to generation of a large amount of peel waste from fruit and vegetable-based industries, agricultural processes, marketplace and household kitchen. Waste peels naturally contain bioenzymes, carotenoids, essential oils, polyphenols, vitamins, minerals and several other valuable bioactive compounds. Therefore application of such a low-cost, easily available potential biomass for production of the value-added products has been emerged as a green step in its sustainable utilization. Such judicious usage of enormous waste peels may also restrict a big nutritional and economic loss as well as control of increasing environmental burdens due to waste dumping.
