PRODUCTION, EXTRACTION AND USES OF ECO-ENZYME USING CITRUS FRUIT WASTE: WEALTH FROM WASTELAPSIA VAMA AND MAKARAND N. CHEREKAR
Eco-enzymes is a complex dark brown colour solution produced by fermentation of fruits waste. It has strong sweet and sour fermented scent due to citrus fruit peels. Eco enzyme produced using fruit peels, water and brown sugar in a ratio 3:10:1. After incubation the filtrate was obtained, we found Flavonoids, Alkaloids, Quinones, Saponins as presence of different metabolites. Its IR spectra showed presence of -OH, COOH group. Also, Amylase, protease and lipase were found in the filtrate. We found applicability as floor cleaning, utensils, gardening, etc. the novel approach for recycle and reuse natural waste would help to reduce fruit waste, it is eco-friendly, economical with multipurpose application.
