In most large citrus processing plants world-wide, the peel is made into cattle feed. The peel is shredded, mixed with lime, allowed to react, and pressed. The liquid from the pressing is evaporated and recycled into the peel or sold as molasses. The press cake is dried in single pass, direct fired rotary dryers with co-current flow of heating gasses and product.
