How to Make Cottonseed Hull Pellets?
Cottonseeds are cultivated worldwide due to their numerous uses and benefits. Cottonseed oil is extracted from the seeds, which is used for cooking and other purposes. Other than oil, many important products such as cottonseed meal, cottonseed hull, etc. are also obtained from it. Cottonseed hull is a seed coat that is removed from the seed before extracting oil from it. Instead of wasting this by-product of the dehulling process, it can be used for various purposes. Similarly, cottonseed meal is another by-product that is obtained after pressing seeds for oil extraction.
