Olive mill waste water is the major byproduct of the olive oil industry containing a range of compounds related to Olea europaea and olive oil constituents. Olive mill waste water comprises an important environmental problem in olive oil producing countries, but it is also a valuable material for the isolation of high added value compounds. In this study, an attempt to investigate the secoiridoid content of olive mill waste water is described with the aid of ultrahigh-performance liquid…

The results support the idea of repositioning a food waste-derived material for nutraceutical employment, with environmental and industrial cost management benefits, and investigate activities associated with potential preventive properties of a polyphenol-rich olive mill wastewater extract, OMWW (A009).

An Olive Oil Mill Wastewater Extract Improves Chemotherapeutic Activity Against Breast Cancer Cells While Protecting From Cardiotoxicity

This study demonstrates that the polyphenol-rich purified OMWW extract A009 combined with cancer chemotherapy could represent a potential candidate for cardiovascular protection in breast cancer patients, while increasing the effects of breast cancer chemotherapy.



Verbascoside, isoverbascoside, and their derivatives recovered from olive mill wastewater as possible food antioxidants.

Individual verbascoside was more active as a scavenger of reactive oxygen species and as a chemopreventive agent protecting low-density lipoproteins from oxidative damage than the LH-20 fraction.

Natural antioxidants and volatile compounds of virgin olive oils obtained by two or three‐phases centrifugal decanters

Research has been carried out to ascertain the influence of different centrifugal decanters employed in olive process on oil yields and qualitative characteristics and composition of volatile

Biological activity of high molecular weight phenolics from olive mill wastewater.

These higher molecular weight phenolics prove to be, in some in vitro tests, more efficient scavengers of hydrophilic hydroxyl radicals than hydroxytyrosol, which could be used for industrial applications as natural nontoxic antioxidants.

From olive drupes to olive oil. An HPLC-orbitrap-based qualitative and quantitative exploration of olive key metabolites.

The current study discloses the chemical nature of different olive materials in a successive and integrated way and reveals new sources of high added value constituents of olives.

Potential biovalorization techniques for olive mill biorefinery wastewater

The industrial process of olive oil extraction produces huge amounts of wastes that have great negative impact on the environment, because of their high phytotoxicity against soil micro‐organisms and

Isolation of megaritolactones and other bioactive metabolites from 'megaritiki' table olives and debittering water.

'Megaritiki' is an olive cultivar widely used in Greece for the production of low polyphenol olive oil and table olives and the recovery of bioactive metabolites from wastewater using adsorption resin was studied to exploit this byproduct.

Bioactivity and analysis of biophenols recovered from olive mill waste.

The phenolic profile of OMW is complex, yet this complexity has not been fully exploited in the valorization of the waste, and most work on the bioactivity of O MW has focused on antioxidant and antimicrobial activities.

Olive oil mill wastewaters before and after treatment: a critical review from the ecotoxicological point of view

The main purpose of this review paper is presenting the state of the art of OMW treatments focusing on their efficiency to reduce OMW toxicity, and emphasizing the role of ecotoxicological tests on the evaluation of such efficiency before the up-scale of treatment methodologies being considered.
