Abstract:

This study was conceptualized to identify whether or not the banana and mango peelings will be a feasible source of bio-ethanol and to identify the significant effect of the amount of bio-waste used and length of the fermentation time on the net bio-ethanol yield. This study primarily aimed to extract bio-ethanol from banana (Musa acuminata) and mango (Mangifera indica) peelings which were subjected to the fermentation and distillation process, then a significant amount of bio-ethanol can be extracted. The amount of bio-ethanol yielded by banana peels was greater than that yielded by the mango peelings. Both the yields showed positive results of ethanol.

Keywords: Banana,mango, bio-ethanol, fermentation, peelings,musa acuminate, magnifera indica.
