    Comparative Study for Production of Biofuel from Potato Peel Waste as Feedstock by Different Enzymes
    Author(s): Minal Deshmukh* and Ashwini Pande

    Biofuels are gaining popularity as a viable alternative to petroleum-based energy. Second and third-generation advanced biofuels, which can be made from renewable materials like agricultural waste, appear to be more competitive. Even though there was a minimum concentration of reducing sugars and high-value waste in the existing solutions. Therefore, the proposed research focused on the bioethanol feedstock potential of Potato Peel Waste (PPW), a zerovalue waste. Where, starch, cellulose, hemicellulose, and fermentable sugars are all present in sufficient amounts in PPW. On the other hand, bioethanol made from potato peel waste has a lot of market potential. Consequently, the policy goal is to ensure that a minimum amount of biofuel is readily available in the market at all times to meet demand. To yield large quantities of reducing sugars, a combination of enzymatic treatment with am.. View More»
