What I can do with my waste?

I have an handmade ice cream industry (100%natural), that unfortunately produce a lot of waste each day... most of it are peel fruit...

Following I hope to change this and find a solution for my organic waste...

We already thought to sell the organic waste, like peel of lemon and orange to extract the essential oils... but at Portugal we didn't find any company that make it.. then we thought to compost it... and we can do it by our own... but and then?? we don't have field to used it...

I hope to hear soon good ideas to help me save the planet!!

  • Jan 26 2012: look in to local beer companys, the new thing is flavored beer. alot of those fruits can be use in the malting process for unique tastes. the fastest growing beverage company right now is shorts brewing in the us they use all kinds of fruit peels for different type of beers. you may also be able to dry them shave them and sell in small bottles like spices.
