Issue Date: Apr-2005
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract:  Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea Linn.) are grown on commercial scale in India and other countries for its kernel, which is used for extracting oil and for making other value added products. Large quantities of peanut shells are available in industries involved in oil and other product manufacturing. Scientists at Philadelphia University have evaluated potential use of peanut shells as a source of fibre, worth utilizing in nonwoven erosion control materials. They also developed a method of separating the fibres from the hulls.
