Spanish researchers explore the use of orange peels to produce bio-plastic

An eco-friendly material made from orange peels could be used in the packaging and agricultural sectors, according to Spanish researchers working on a circular economy project called MIPLASCOE. Essentially, the researchers are aiming to recover the wastes generated in the orange juice sector in order to produce bio-plastic.

Like plastic, when dried the material is tough and malleable. Unlike plastic, it is also biodegradable.
