In this review paper, the history of the olive tree and the development of the main olive oil extraction systems employed in the past are presented. Furthermore, the management techniques employed from antiquity until today for the treatment of olive mill wastewater (OMW), which constitutes the most important by-product of olive oil production, are addressed and compared. Reference is also made to global olive oil production, the environmental impacts of the uncontrolled disposal of OMW, and to… 

Existing and emerging technologies for the treatment of olive oil mill wastewaters

Olive oil mill wastewaters (OOMW) represent a significant environmental problem especially in the Mediterranean, the main olive oil production region in the world. Characterization of OOMW is carried

Environmental impacts in the life cycle of olive oil: a literature review.

Farming of olive trees and the manufacturing of olive oil are revealed as the phases with the highest environmental focus from the scientific community and gaps in the literature are detected mostly with respect to fuel consumption and the use and promotion of renewable energy sources in olive oil production.

Balanced waste management of 2- and 3-phase olive oil mills in relation to the seed oil extraction plant.

Olive oil extraction process produces a considerable amount of olive oil mill wastes (OMW) and wastewaters (OMWW) which have a high pollutant load. There are several OMWW treating methods but in most
