Energy from pomace, Guidelines for projects aiming
This document defines guidelines for the evaluation of the feasibility conditions for the realisation of an olive pomace-to-energy plant based on a local supply chain, replacing the fossil fuels (mainly diesel oil and natural gas).
Olive pomace1 is an important resource in the European Union: each year in EU we produce more that 7 million tons of olive pomace that can be used for energy production instead of being disposed of as waste.
Particularly, the guidelines help in delineating the project characteristics in terms of technological, economic and environmental aspects as well as in evaluating the sustainability under the entrepreneurial profile.
