Yes, according to the EPA. Google "Limonene mosquito"


It appears to be a good natural cleanser:

A bit off-topic, but is the d-limonene in orange peels any good as a mosquito repellent?


Best wishes,

Hi Tom,
I had a tip from Crispin and have used dried orange, mandarine and other citrus peels for starters. When they are well-dried, you note the presence of oils and they burn quite nicely. I have not had enough volume to try running one of my gasifier stoves on them alone, but they work great as a starter-- you can use them in place of starter fluid or paste or the like.

I've had an inquiry from Southern Africa about orange peels. Does anyone have experience carbonizing or gasifying orange peels?


Do the burn in a TLUD?


Do they make gas in an ARTI style compact digester?


Can you char them? ( If you can char an apple or a pizza I guess you can char an orange.)
