Abstract: A bio composite is a material formed from two or more distinct components one of which is derived from nature that are combined together to produce a new material with greater efficiency. Bio composites are made up of different kinds of organic/inorganic components, such as natural and manufactured polymers, polysaccharides, proteins, sugars etc., Different types of bio composites like films, membranes etc. The present study aimed in developing bio composite material from orange peels powder. The orange peels were collected from local shop that were further treated with sodium hypochlorite solution to prevent microbial growth. After, treatment powder was made, further characterization of orange peel powder was done in which moisture content, ash content, crude fat, pectin estimation as well as cellulose estimation was studied. In the present study, proximate composition and biological activities of the orange fruit peel extract was studied. Antimicrobial activity confirmed, prepared bio composite material has resistance against Gram negative bacteria that defines prepared material have wide range of applications in future. FTIR analysis confirmed presence of functional groups in prepared bio composite material, SEM confirmed morphological surface or appearance of prepared material. Hence, it can be concluded that prepared material has wide scope in coming future.
