EU-funded project looks to produce biodiesel and biomaterials from olive mill wastewater

April 10, 2018 |

In Turkey, a European Union-funded project is helping researchers from Turkey, Slovenia, Spain, Italy, Germany and Latvia to further develop technology to produce biofuels from olive oil processing wastewater. The Rhodolive project looks to ferment the organic load of olive mill wastewater that can then be turned into biodiesel, animal feed and higher value products such as intermediates for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical sectors. A 30 liter pilot scale reactor will be developed during the 36-month project that will kick off in June.
