In this project, wastes will be turned into valuable and useful products.
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
We will extract and spray dry pectin extract from orange peels in a two step extraction and direct drying process, rather than the current lengthier three-step extraction, crystallization and crystal drying process. Spray drying involves taking liquid extracts and spraying them into hot air to form dry powders.
