In Biogas extraction from waste orange peel by digestion process the disposal methods define the fresh peels of orange for the citrus processing industry has become a major concern. Orange peels are the major solid by-product and the dried orange peels have content of protein, pectin, cellulose, and hemicellulose, those can be converted into a valuable product like methane gas by anaerobic digestion process. Our main objective is to thoroughly inspect the prospect of handling and transformation of the waste orange peels into the valuable product like biogas. These huge amounts of orange peels are wastely disposed and disposing of them is also a very big concern for the citrus processing industry. The anaerobic digestion process is an economical process to convert the proteins, pectin, cellulose and hemicellulose which are contained in the waste orange peels into methane gas. By using this technique of extracting methane gas from orange peels by Anaerobic digestion or fermentation process, the demand for the fossil fuel can be reduced in future because it is not possible to ensure that we will have enough fossil fuel to run the engine of the vehicle as well as to produce the electricity through plants at the same time we can maintain the free pollution environment.
