Experimental Substantiation of the Use of Agricultural Waste in Obtaining Biodiesel
Kazakh-German University, Fac. of Physics and Economics, Kazakhstan
The territory of the Turkestan region of the Republic of Kazakhstan is the most promising for growing pumpkins. The climate of the region is characterised by high spring-summer-autumn temperatures, and the well-developed root system of this melon crop is perfectly adapted for cultivation on irrigated lands. The peel formed during pumpkin processing can be considered as a promising specific raw material for the production of products with higher value added, for example, as an energy source. This study substantiate the use of the rind and pumpkin seeds of Cucurbita pepo L. as a potential source of biofuels.
