  • Abstract Olive oil production involves a significant annual release of industrial olive oil mill effluent to the environment. These discharges bring serious environmental problems since they are extremely hazardous for the aquatic environment due to their organic matter and high turbidity levels. The present study comprises the development of new, hydrophobically modified, cationic flocculants directed to oily effluents application. A health-friendly formulation was used in their synthesis… CONTINUE READING
