Re-milling waste into revenue

Traditionally, left-over low-grade pomace oil is recovered from wet husk after the first extraction of olive oil, using energy-intensive rotary driers. This results in relatively wet husk of low commercial value, and a lot of difficult-to-handle black water. Both are difficult and expensive to dispose of.

Rethinking the re-milling process

To help you tackle this, Alfa Laval provides an innovative four-step re-milling process.

This low-cost solution gives you a responsible way to deal with polluted water effluent from three-phase olive oil extraction, to significantly cut down on disposal costs and to find new ways of reusing the by-products, so they have greater commercial value.
