PHENOILS PROJECT TO START FINAL ANUITY
PHENOILS PROJECT WILL TEST AT INDUSTRIAL SCALE TWO INNOVATIVE EXTRACTION TECHNIQUES FOR HEALTHIER EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
In this last project´s annuity, EnergyPulse Systems (Portugal), together with Acesur, CSIC-Instituto de la Grasa (Spain), Technological Germany centre Fraunhofer (Germany) and University of Turin (Italy), will carry out Industrial Scale trials, as last step of this project.
It is planned to conduct all extractive trials, with autochthonous olive cultivars from locations selected for the study, at the same way than previous annuities of the project.
PHENOILS project will continue to work in the development of new extraction technologies (Pulsed Electric Fields and Ultrasound) for the production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), with high polyphenolic content, in a more sustainable and economic way. The EVOO produced will stand out due to its beneficial properties in health, providing preventive effects in some relevant diseases as diabetes, overweight or cardiovascular diseases, scientifically verified by several essays and studies published.
Full information obtained through annuities is being disseminated in diverse universities and technological centres, closed to producers, operators and students of Olive oil sector in RIS countries, in geographies linked to the sector as Italy, Greece, Portugal and Spain. This last annuity will also address Croatia as a new point for dissemination of the project and used technologies.
PHENOILS project, promotes innovative extraction techniques to the Olive Oil sector, bringing innovation to the sector focus on quality and economic profitability of EVOOs processes.
