Olive cake

Olive cake is a by-product of the olive oil production process and consists of shells, pulp and olive pit fragements (approx. 40-45%). Depending on the processing phase, the olive cake has a higher or lower oil content. It is available during the entire year and is used as a raw material for the extraction of the crashed olive kernels.
Thanks to its excellent suitability for combustion, a growing number of companies such as thermal and conventional power station operators, cement factories and industrial plants, have used this material as an alternative fuel. It can also be used as a co-firing fuel for gasification plants and biomass boilers.

Minimum order quantity is 500 metric tonnes. Prices on request.
