Subject: Olive tree cultivation and olive fruit processing produce large amounts of by-products, including pruning and harvest residues and liquid and solid wastes arising from olive oil extraction and the production of table olives. The disposal without any treatment of the wastewaters, arising mainly from the olive-mill and to a lesser degree from the table olive industries, is known to cause serious environmental problems. The problems created in managing these wastes have been extensively investigated during the last 50 years without finding a solution which is technically feasible, economically viable and socially acceptable. In more recent years, the olive processing industires have come under increasing pressure from the controlling authorities to find a disposal/recycling system that meets present-day anti-pollution standars. This book is the first comprehensive review to appear on the subject of olive processing waste. The book also covers the results of archaeological research and includes references of ancient authors on the use and the environmental effects of olive-mill wastes since antiquity. Emphasis has been given to olive-mill wastewater and to the new by-product - known as alperujo in Spain - generated by the two-phase extraction process. A separate chapter is dedicated to the wastewaters (lye solutions and brines) arising from the table olive processing. Economic and legislative issues with regard to olive-mill wastes are also presented.
