Iranian Scientists Produce Fuel from Fruit and Vegetable Waste.
Bioethanol is a valuable substance used for medical, pharmaceutical and industrial purposes, also known as green fuel that could replace gasoline. The new method used for the production of Bioethanol by Iranian scientist is very economical compared with previous methods because it can be accomplished by approximately one third of the cost of the customary methods.
Zareian noted that the Bioethanol produced through this method is economical and could be used as an alternative fuel for gasoline.
"according to the available data, the vegetable and fruit waste produced in Iran is approximately 1.5 to 2.5 million tons per year and transmutation of the waste into Bioethanol would reduce environmental consequences of dumping the waste as well as reducing the pollution and consumption of fossil fuels" he pointed out.
The semi-industrial production of Bioethanol through the new method is currently taking place at Shahrekord University, according to Zareian.
