Due to rapid increase in population size and exponential growth in industrialisation, load is increasing on the fossil fuel resources and thus these resources are being depleted very fast. To save the future generations from the acute shortage of fuel resources, which is being anticipated, it is important to find out some novel ways to produce renewable fuels. Some alternative fuels like Bio-fuel may reduce the load on conventional fossil fuel resources. To produce bio-ethanol using substrates such as molasses, fruit pulps etc. are well known. In the present work bio-ethanol, from mango peel, was produced which in addition solves the problem of disposal of wastes from juice industries. Mango peels were dried and the then ground and finally powder obtained was dissolved in distilled water. Sugar concentration was adjusted to a level of 15 percent. Using baker”Ēs yeast, i.e. Saccharomyces cerevisiae, this substrate solution was fermented and the ethanol was produced after five days of incubation. The properties of bioethanol from mango peel were determined and found to be reasonably comparable with conventional gasoline.
