Titre : OliPFUEL Advanced Biofuels Production from Waste Olive Pomace of Olive Oil Industries

Making olive oil pomace into a greener biofuel

Code du projet : 101062601

Durée : Start date 5 September 2022 // End date 4 September 2024

Descriptif
The olive oil industry produces significant amounts of olive pomace waste every year. Disposal has environmental ramifications, as does converting it into a biofuel because the conventional process necessitates the use of corrosive and toxic acids. The MSCA-funded OliPFUEL project aims to change this through a proof-of-concept activity by researchers at the University of Jaen and the bioenergy company Bioliza. The project will develop an environmentally friendly way of optimising the conversion without the use of toxic chemicals by utilising water hydrolysis, yeast fermentation and hydrothermal processes. Results may lead to up-scaled olive pomace biofuel production and a greener energy future.
