A new method was carried out in this experiment. The citrus fruit dregs received from processing were immersed in the saturated lime water, then neutralized and separated. The highly purified compound ethanol was obtained by microbial fermentation from extracted solution in the process. It is expected that this method could he used for multi-purpose utilization of the wastes of citrus processing.
