Apple pomace is a major global waste product generated primarily during apple juice processing and represents up to 30% of the original fruit. This solid residue consists of a complex mixture of peel, core, seed, calyx, stem, and soft tissues. In India, about 5,000 tonnes of apple pomace is produced annually from different apple processing industries, and usually dumped outside the factories, wherein it ferments and causes air pollution.
