Phenoils project to test Olive oil extraction with Ultrasounds and Pulsed Electric Fields

 

EVOO obtained with innovative extraction techniques will be compared with oils from conventional extraction technique.

Masterclasses and workshops will be carried out with the aim to increase project´s dissemination.

 

PHENOILS, European project of R&D, financially supported by EIT-FOOD, coordinated by Acesur, accompanied by a consortium of international entities: Instituto de la Grasa-CSIC (Centre for advanced scientific studies), University of Turin, Technological German centre of Fraunhofer and Portuguese company EnergyPulses Systems, enters its last annuity with the objective of consolidating the promising results obtained on previous years.

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.

Industrial scale-up of Pulsed Electric Fields technology for natural fruit juice processing

The increasing consumers’ interest in minimally processed foods, with high nutritional values and more “fresh-like” characteristics is pushing food processors towards the search for viable alternatives with respect to already settled procedures used for Mass Transfer processes. Through the PUREJUICE project, Energy Pulse Systems (EPS) will validate the implementation of a novel Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) system within the juice production lines of different fruit matrices: pear, red fruits/berries, tropical fruit, stone fruit and grapes. PUREJUICE constitutes a promising alternative or complement to the standard enzymatic maceration stage for the pre-treatment of raw materials in fruit juice processing. Starting from remarkable results obtained with the EPULSUS technology applied to “natural” apple juice production within the industrial facility of a global producer, PUREJUICE aims to prove the technological and economic feasibility of the application of the Apple solution to the processing of other fruits.
