Pharmaceutical Excipient from Agriculture Waste Product

Nitin. S. Gosavi, Sagar R. Jadhav, Shraddha P. Amrutkar


Agriculture produces a large Amount of waste, which contain a high amount of cellulose line polysaccharide that form a large part of the plant solid cell wall. This waste product can be use efficiently by a variety of recycling method such as energy source, source of large compound such as cellulose, gum polymers etc. disposal of waste from fruit bearing industry has been problem due to the high cost travel cost and limited availability of landfills, as this product have no number commercial value often discarded improper disposal of mangos waste can dramatically increase pollution due to its rapid decay eventually becoming source of insect replication high level of BOD and COD inside mango page waste create another disposal problem to some extent vermicomposting technology can be assist in the disposal of industrial waste, which include fruit waste, in a safe, economical and useful way.
