Oranges, lemons, grapefruit: Citrus fruits are the most common fruit trees in the world. When their fruits are processed into juice, about half the biomass remains as waste – a problem for industry, the environment, and also a loss of valuable, frequently bioactive substances. In a project financed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, researchers at Bremen’s Jacobs University, under the leadership of Professor Marcelo Fernandez-Lahore, these waste products are being used in order to extract valuable natural substances.

Two pharmaceutical companies are now using the method for the first time as a test.
