    Development of a plant to convert waste citrus peelings into useful by-products.

    On 5th June 2018, a collaboration between PeelPioneers and Renewi announced that BOM Brabant Ventures, the DOEN Foundation and ABN-AMRO will together invest more than €1 million in the construction of a plant to convert waste citrus peelings into useful by-products at the Renewi site in Son. The new installation will be operational by autumn 2018.

    The plant is expected to process 25,000 to 50,000 kilos of citrus peels per day into essential oils and citrus pulp, which are used, among other things, as an ingredient for detergents and as a high-quality supplementary feed for cattle. In future, other components of the peel, including cellulose and pectin, will be processed into valuable by-products. The peel will be collected by Renewi at supermarkets, catering establishments and food manufacturers.

    Approximately 250 million kilos of citrus peels are thrown away every year in the Netherlands and because the peel causes problems in the composting and fermentation of organic waste, a large part ends up in incinerators.

    Every 1,000 kilos of peels that are processed at the new plant will produce enough cleaning products for 4,500 square metres of flooring and supplementary feed for 200 cows. In addition, it will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by an equivalent 220 kg.
