Ultrasound reactor - The solution for a continuous olive oil extraction process

Project description

Ultrasound waves to extract superior oil

The EU is the leading producer, consumer and exporter of olive oil. An estimated 67 % of the world’s olive oil is produced in the EU, mainly in the Mediterranean countries. In this context, the EU-funded OLIVE-SOUND project will assist oil producers in meeting consumer demand for high-quality virgin olive oil (VOO). Specifically, it will introduce a novel ultrasound reactor for the treatment of olive paste, which will replace malaxation, restore continuity and boost the VOO extraction process. It also uses less water. The application of ultrasounds directly to the olive paste improves both extraction efficiency and extraction rate resulting in a 5 % higher yield in 70 % less extraction time.
