Possible Energy Uses of Olive Mill Residues: A Technical and Economical Comparison

D. Poli & G. Ragaglini
This paper focuses on the opportunities and challenges deriving from an energy use of olive pomace. The technical feasibility and the economical profitability of different plant solutions are investigated. To a methodological contribution, related to the description and modelling of the proposed conversion processes, some case-studies are joined, calibrated on the Tuscan olive sector.
