EXTRACTION OF OIL EXTRACTED FROM PINEAPPLE (Ananas comosus) PEELS FOR PRODUCTION OF PERFUME

This study investigated the chemical composition of the oil derived from pineapple (Ananas comosus) peels in order to discover potential applications for the oils. Significant amounts of important food commodities, as well as their parts, byproducts, and residues, have been lost and wasted as a result of increased production, growth, improper handling techniques, and inadequate infrastructure (Sagar et al, 2018). According to Pranav et al., large amounts of lignocellulosic biomass are produced annually during agricultural product production, processing, and consumption (2017). This biomass has a wide range of applications, including use as a low-cost biosorbent, a feedstock for the production of biochemicals and biofuels, and a substrate for the production of various enzymes and metabolites. Furthermore, byproducts such as fruit waste (bagasse, peel, and pulp)
