Cotton: Foremost Fiber of the World A Mountain of Cottonseed for Fabulous New Uses Ten thousand tons of ginning throwoff that formerly would have been waste await delinting and crushing.

A mere list of the manifold uses of linters, hulls, oil, and meal these seeds yield would contain more words than this article (page 137).
