Abstract/Executive Summary

One of the main contributors to the waste problem in the Philippines is citrus fruits because of their high yield. Various studies have investigated the utilization of citrus fruit waste for different applications. However, there is a lack of a systematic mapping study that can bring these studies together. Thus, this study employed a systematic approach to determine the utilization of citrus fruit wastes which will be beneficial to reduce waste in the landfill. This study sought to: 1) investigate the trends in current research on citrus fruit waste utilization, 2) identify the processes undergone by citrus fruit waste to achieve their respective applications, and 3) observe the techniques that have been utilized to evaluate the efficiency and performance of citrus fruit waste products. The study performed a general search for papers related to citrus fruit waste utilization in Scopus search engine. The documents were organized into specific categories, and data extraction was performed. After the data was analyzed and the following results were obtained: there is a continuous increase in the amount of research on citrus fruit waste utilization, citrus fruit peels are the most commonly used type of waste, citrus fruit wastes undergo rigorous processes that mostly involve heat to reach their applications, and most studies utilize pore size and BET surface area to evaluate fruit waste products. In conclusion, citrus fruit waste utilization is a topic with great potential, and will contribute to solving the waste management problem in the country.
