Training on Value Addition to Cottonseed

Cotton is a major cash crop and India is leading producer in the world today. It is estimated that about 35.1 million bales (170 kg each) of cotton would be produced during 2016-17. The cottonseed available for processing during this year is estimated to be around 11.7 million tonnes. Cottonseed contains good quality oil and protein and is therefore a valuable resource but has not received the due attention so far, as fibre is given. Most of the cottonseed obtained after ginning in our country is directly crushed to get crude oil which is used for edible purposes after refining and the residual cottonseed cake is used for ruminant feed. However, only 10-12% oil is recovered in the process and the remaining about 7-8% oil is left in the cottonseed cake. Besides, valuable by-products like linters and hulls are lost and the cake obtained has lower protein content, gossypol and high content of fibres, which restricts its use for poultry and fish feed applications. Scientific
cottonseed processing on the other hand results in almost complete recovery of oil and valuable products such as linters, hulls and de-oiled high protein cottonseed meal and thus full value of cottonseed is realized. The products thus obtained can be further value added to get higher economic benefit. This training programme aims to create awareness among the participants about the benefits of scientific processing of cottonseed and various technologies developed at CIRCOT for value addition to cottonseed.

Objectives

  • To impart knowledge about scientific processing of cottonseed and its benefits
