Orange Peel Boards
The Orange Peel Board is a panel made by mixture of different proportions dried peels and wet peels. The commonly used processing method is thermo-pressing.
The springs allow keeping the pressure constant even after the volume reduction and a planar panel were obtained. Significant differences were found in the water content of the blends, and, as expected, shrinkage decreased with the addition of dried orange peels.
3.2. Thermal Properties
Compared with the literature, the samples from orange peel showed a higher thermal conductivity than other non-natural commercial insulations such as mineral wool, polystyrenes, and so on. However, the conductivity values obtained from orange peel panels are in line with the conductivity of other agro-waste insulation materials such as durian  and ficus indica . Furthermore, the conductivity is lower than the particleboard made with corn-cob , sunflower  and walnut shell , and greater than the particleboard made with coconut shell , pineapple leaves , sugarcane  and rice straw .
