How it’s made?

The olive pomace core is produced in oil mills processing of olives, for extracting the olive oil. Removal of olive oil, the vast majority of mills, made by centrifugation in centrifugal separators in two or three phases.

Then the olive pomace is transferred to our factory to make delivery of the residual oil (crude olive-pomace oil).

The factory is the drying of olive pomace that the humidity to fall to 8% - 10%. The drying is done burning olive pits with ambient air.

Energy of the Future... Why?

The olive biomass is a recycled natural waste so no trees are cut down to create our product. All raw materials are sourced from sustainable sources. Moreover, olive biomass sourcing does not take up agricultural land that could be utilized for food production unlike many of the other agricultural biomass fuels. The use of olive biomass causes no net increase in the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere therefore olive biomass is a suitable alternative to fossil fuels. It is a readily available, reliable, renewable energy source with high calorific value.

Olive biomass releases considerable energy during its combustion and its calorific value largely exceeds that of other wood or agricultural biomass. Biomass fuels are probably the oldest form of energy sources where organic materials are utilized to generate power. Olive biomass is the solid residue from the production of olive oil. The solid olive residue is composed of olive pits and dried olive cake/husk.

To summarize Olive Biomass has several advantages such

  • It has an ensured annual production.
  • It has high calorific value around 20 KJ/ Kg
  • It has high density, very concentrated fuel
  • It has proper humidity conditions : 9-10%
  • It is a carbon clean, renewable fuel source
