Abstract

The quantities of jojoba seed available at present for extraction are too small to be handled by existing commercial oil seed processing plants, most of which have capacities exceeding 50 tons of seed per day. Instead, small mechanical presses or solvent extractors are being used. Following is a summary of experience we have gained on jojoba wax extraction to date.
