The Feasibility of orange peel as cardboard Group 7: Elyka Lyne Goling Emrald Archie Salem Chapter 1: Problem(background): Nowadays, people don¶t have idea that the orange peel can be a cardboard and it is too hard to do. The researchers thought that the orange peel can be a cardboard. The oranges have vitamins in our body and the peel of that can promotes healthy skin. The peel of it is what we gonna used for the experiment. The description of the peel is rough and smooth which the orange(the fruit of it)is safe inside. The two researchers gonna make it simpler than the usual doing of the card board. The peel as vitamins like C same with the potato the skin has more vitamin then just the plain potato with out the skin . Cardboard is a generic term for a heavy-duty paper of various strengths, ranging from a simple arrangement of a single thick sheet of paper to complex configurations featuring multiple corrugated and uncorrugated layers. Despite widespread use in general English, the term is deprecated in business and industry. Material producers, container manufacturers, packaging enginners and standard organizations, try to use more specific terminology. There is still no complete and uniform usage. Often the term "cardboard" is avoided because it does not define any particular material. When you eat a juicy orange you typically toss away the peel, unaware of its health properties. Orange peel can aid digestion, reduce infection, lower cholesterol and fight skin and breast cancer. It makes good bug and cat repellent and is a useful cleanser and deodorizer. Orange peel is also delicious candied or grated and added to meals, deserts and beverages. For maximum health, choose organic orange peel and avoid ingesting pesticides, herbicides or wax coating used to enhance appearance. Another use for orange peels is as a candied dessert or accent. Orange peels can be boiled in sugar water until they become nearly translucent. Once allowed to dry, or placed in a food dehydrator, the candied orange peels can be eaten as a snack or combined with other dried fruits as an unusual salad. Different recipes for candied orange peels are available, but generally they involve the entire peel and pith, with several boiling sessions and a drying stage. Outside of the kitchen, there are a surprising number of uses for orange peels. One unusual use for dried orange peels is as kindling for fires. The orange oils found in the peels are indeed flammable, but they burn more slowly and steadily than common kindling material such as newspaper. Orange peels also have the advantage of creating a pleasant odor as they burn. It may be convenient to keep a heat-resistant bucket near the fireplace as a collection point for discarded orange peels. The essential oils found in orange peels are also used as insect repellents. To discourage ants from entering your home, experts suggest using a blended puree of orange peels and water directly on anthills and favored pathways. Rubbing orange peels directly on the skin is also said to be an effective mosquito repellent. Insects in general find the odor of orange oil offensive, which may be a natural means of protecting the fruit from would-be predators. Statement of the problem: Main problem: Can the orange peel be a cardboard? Sub Problems: 1. What is the positive characteristic of the orange peel to be a cardboard? 2. What characteristic of cardboard that maybe have the orange peel? 3. What is the effectiveness use of the orange peel as a cardboard: a. Orange peel with papers b. Orange peel without papers Hypothesis: Maybe the orange peel can be a cardboard. Significance of the study: In environment, According to the scientists working on the project, led by Benaissa Houcine, synthetic dye is used extensively in a variety of applications, ranging from paper printer and color photography to dye houses and textile-applicable colors. All these industries combined make up for most of the chemicals that are dumped in nearby streams and rivers. Thus far, the only possibility for clearing those waters were complex chemical procedures. But now, the Laboratory of Sorbent Materials and Water Treatment, from the Department of Chemistry at University of Tlemcen, has concluded that "orange peel has a considerable potential for the removal of dyes from aqueous solutions over a wide range of concentrations." "Orange peel may be used as a low-cost, natural and abundant source for the removal of dyes, and it may be an alternative to more costly materials," Benaissa added. Dye in rivers can cause irreversible damages to the environment, especially considering that some concentrated dyes are capable of influencing the ecosystems in the water even in extremely small concentrations, such as 1 ppm (parts per million). These acid substances come between sunlight and the photosynthesizing plants on the bottom of the water and prevent vegetation from processing light. A loss in plants means a loss in fish and other members of the ecosystem as well. In Health, Orange peel has more phytonutrients and flavonoids than the inner pulp, endowing it with anti-inflammatory properties that can aid digestion and relieve gastrointestinal problems such as acidity, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhea and the digestion of fatty foods. Orange peel is rich in vitamins A and C, both of which are natural antioxidants that boost the overall health of the immune system and fight infection, colds and flu. Orange peels contain hesperidin, a flavonoid, as well as polymethoxylated flavones and pectin, all of which help reduce cholesterol and LDL levels. The flavonoid hesperidin found in orange peels has anti-inflammatory properties that, when ingested, can cure certain types of breast cancer and inhibit bone loss. Orange peel also contains dlimonene, which serves as shield toward ultraviolet rays, making it an effective natural sunscreen and skin cancer preventative when rubbed onto the skin directly or added to skin oils and lotions. The topical use of orange peel can prevent pimples, acne, premature aging and wrinkling and can be added to a bath for healthy skin and a refreshing scent. You can use orange peel to repel ants, mosquitoes and other insects by pureeing the peel with a blender or food processor and spreading it around the area you wish to protect. The oil from the peel also makes an excellent bug repellent when applied topically. Sprinkle orange peels around your garden to repel cats, as they do not like the sharp smell and will avoid digging near them. In addition, the acidic properties of orange peel make it an effective cleanser and deodorizer. It can be used in soaps, toothpastes and other personal hygiene products, as well as in household cleansers and deodorizers. In Education, it helps the student to discover new things tthat the orange peel have a use in this world they know that orange peel is used as an cardboard and they have new idea in making impossible things to possible. Scope and Limitation: In this study the orange peel, the result of too rapid drying after spraying, or failure to exhibit the desired leveling effects.
