Abstract A preliminary study has been performed for the valorization of citrus peel waste (CPW) through the biorefinery platform aiming to produce succinic acid. Following extraction of essential oils and pectin, different conditions of dilute acid hydrolysis were evaluated based on estimation of the sugars liberated and subsequent fermentation of hydrolyzates for production of succinic acid by Actinobacillus succinogenes . The most suitable pretreatment conditions involved 116 °C for 10 min… CONTINUE READING
