Research Outline

Potato Peel Extracts


Determine what can be extracted from potato peels for a manufacturer of CO2 and CO2 + Ethanol extraction equipment looking to form a business case for a client with tonnes of potato peel waste per day. Specifically:
  • Determine what can be extracted.
  • Identify the solvents and parameters that are needed for the trial extractions.
  • If possible, provide the expected yields for the outputs.
Topical searches have been done and they show potential opportunities. However, no deep research has been done.

Early Findings

Data Availability

  • The initial round of research indicates that data availability is adequate on this topic.

What can be Extracted from Potato Peels


  • Our initial hour of research focused on ensuring that the research question could be answered using publicly available sources. In the early findings, we have provided some extracts of potato peels. We can continue with research and provide a more in-depth response.
  • We were not provided a geographic focus for this project, so we assumed a broad approach and looked globally. If a more targeted approach is desired, for example, the United States, this would have to be clearly communicated to us in any reply within the scoping box.
  • As a reminder, Wonder only uses publicly available sources to answer all research questions. We do not do primary research, and we do not have access to paid databases or paywalled reports, but we can cite them in research for reference only [in case purchase is desired]. Also, no indication of paid resources to add value to this research was seen in the discovery phase.
  • While the initial hour of research does not allow us to embed graphics and other visuals, we can do that for any subsequent research projects that are selected. This will enable us to provide visual examples/graphs/charts to add color and depth to the research.
