Membrane Filtration for the Isolation of Valuable Components from the Aqueous Stream of Steam Exploded Citrus Processing Waste

Description: About 95% of the oranges produced in US are used for processing into juice. Citrus processing waste (CPW) is what remains from the fruit after it has been processed into juice. CPW is made up of the peel, rag, juice sacs and seeds. Approximately 44% of the orange fruit mass wet consists of CPW….
