Orange Peels as Alternative Fuel?

Orange Peels as Alternative Fuel?

OPEC (not what you think) says it's possible

Orange juice is perhaps the most wasteful thing to make with oranges. Luckily, a chemist has discovered how to convert the orange peels (and pulpy waste) to ethanol, biodegradable plastic, and eco-friendly cleaning products.

Professor James Clark from York University has discovered an extraction method using high-powered microwaves, and the university has created a project to further his research. It’s called the Orange Peel Exploitation Company (OPEC — rings a bell, doesn’t it?).

This is definitely good news for the world, especially because more than three million tons of orange peels rot away a year in Brazil, the world’s largest orange juice producer.
