• Mango Peels According to the study of Walia N. K, Bedi S. S, Kundu. K, Karmakar (2013), The mechanical drying of these wastes (mango peel, citrus peel, pineapple peel and tomato processing wastes) gives opportunity to store these substrates over long periods of time. The yeast is one of the best suited candidates for industrial alcohol production. However, ethanol is produced commercially by yeast because it ferments glucose to produce ethanol as a virtually sole product and it is known for its high ethanol tolerance, rapid fermentation rates and insensitivity to temperature and substrate concentration. Mango is processed to a maximum extent, thereby producing high quality of solid and liquid wastes. The presence of high amount of reducing sugars in dried and fresh mango peel prompted us to make an attempt to utilize it as a raw material for ethanol production and development of a cheap medium. The present study was carried out to produce bioethanol using mango peel, an agro-industry waste. • Production of Ethanol from Waste Materials The excessive consumption of fossil fuels, particularly in large urban areas, has greatly contributed to generation of high levels of pollution. There is a need for environmentally sustainable energy sources to find a viable and long-term substitute for liquid petroleum. As a step to solve this problem, the use or addition of biofuels to gasoline, which reduces emission of carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons that form smog, has widely been enforced in recent years (Wyman, 1994). Moreover, in the article of (Wyman, 1996), he mentioned that converting a renewable non-fossil carbon, such as organic wastes and biomass consisting of all growing organic matter (plants, grasses, fruit wastes and algae) to fuel would assure a continual energy
