%X In Algeria, the conditioning units of dates, generate
significant quantities of waste arising from sorting deviations. This
biomass, until then considered as a waste with high impact on the
environment can be transformed into high value added product. It is
possible to develop common dates of low commercial value, and put
on the local and international market a new generation of products
with high added values such as bio ethanol. Besides its use in
chemical synthesis, bio ethanol can be blended with gasoline to
produce a clean fuel while improving the octane.
