Olive Cake (Olive Pomace)

Olive Cake, also known as olive pomace, is a byproduct of the olive oil extraction process. During this process, olives are crushed using mills and then centrifuged to separate the oil from the solid materials. The remaining by-products include pits and cake. Olive Cake consists of the crushed olive flesh, skins, and remaining bits of pits after the initial oil extraction. The physical and chemical characteristics of olive cake make it an excellent alternative to fossil fuels for power, heat, and process heat production.
