Olive Pits

Olive Pits are 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. To isolate the olive pits, the mixture is screened, washed, and dried, resulting in rice-sized crushed olive stones. The physical and chemical characteristics of crushed olive pits make them an excellent alternative for a diverse range of clients in power, heat, and process heat production sectors.
