Noureddine Baaka, Adel Mahfoudhi & Mohamed Farouk Mhenni
The further usage of vegetable waste from orange as textile dyes is presented in this paper. The work is focused on carotenoids dyestuff extracted from orange peels. A statistical mixture-design technique was used to study the effects of different solvents (acetone, hexane, and ethanol) and their mixtures on the carotenoids yield from the orange peel wastes. The experimental results and their response-surface models showed that the combination of solvents increased the total carotenoids yields compared...
