Mango peels extract can synthesize a substance to decompose oil sludge according to a new study of Biruck Desalegn Yirsaw from University of South Australia.

At present, boron hydride is used to synthesize decomposed oil or contaminated soil. Dr. Yesso said that dried and mashed mango peels were boiled ,filtered and mixed them with ferric chloride to make a herbal nanomolecule that was more effective in removing 90 percent of the toxins from soil.

He said that land testing had not yet been carried out, but we had tested soil samples in the laboratory and found that the decontamination effect is better than that of marketed products.

The identical synthetic compounds made from Mango peels extract also removes 99% chromium toxin from contaminated water. Yesso believes the discovery is a sustainable environmental approach to clean up oil pollution, and he believes that people should make all technologies more environmentally and friendly and reduce the impact on the environment and ecology, as well as manufacturing process.

Mango is rich in iron, but he says it is still unclear which biomolecules can decompose oil. "This suggests that we may be able to step up our research to identify or further understand the biological molecules involved in the synthesis of nanomolecules," he said. "

Yesso admitted that it was not clear whether the new process was more environmentally and friendly than boron hydride, but that biology was generally safer than chemistry. And this process can also make reuse of mango skin waste.

However, Robert Gary, chief executive of the Australian Mango Trade Union, says 95% of Australian mangoes are sold in whole grains and less peeled to make yogurt or beverages.
