Olive Pomace Pellet Machine

Olive pomace pellet machine is a kind of biomass pellet machine, which can make olive pomace into olive pellets. Olive pellets are an alternative biomass fuel to wood pellets. As a granulate, they are suitable for biomass boilers, gasification plants, cogeneration units and thermal power stations. The pellets are also suitable for heating olive mills and private house. Similarly, the ashes produced in combustion are used to manufacture fertilizer, given their high soluble potassium content.


1.Vertical feeding, directly in place.

2.The mold is stationary, the pressure wheel is rotated, the material is centrifuged, and the material is evenly surrounded.

3.The mold is double-layered, dual-use, lower cost, high production and energy saving.

4.Ring mold, vertical structure, using the granulation chamber to reduce heat.

5.The ring frequency pellet machine's independent variable frequency discharge device guarantees the pellet forming rate, reasonable design and low energy consumption.

6.The main stress components use high-alloy wear-resistant materials, and the life of wearing parts is twice that of similar products.

7.24 hours work, fully automatic lubrication.

Olive Pomace Characteristics

After the olives have been pressed and the olive oil is extracted, the olive cake is very wet. The moisture content is approximately 40-70% depending on the olive oil extraction process. The effective method of recycling this waste product is to dry it. After drying, the moisture content goes down to 8-15 %. Dried olive residue was utilized since ancient times in the Mediterranean for cooking and heating. When burned directly, the energy stored in the olive pomace is transformed and released as heat. The calorific value of olive pomace is quite high and comparable to that of coal. And its calorific value largely exceeds that of wood waste biomass. Therefore, the potential of making pellets out of olive pomace is a viable alternative. With several processes, the natural waste resource is turned into high value energy products and a premium quality biomass fuel pellet.

Benefits of Olive Pomace Pellet

1. The product is oil-bearing and is therefore water repellent on storage and contains less dust.

2. A much better combustion value compared to wood pellets.

3. The ash of olive burning has no disposal rights and is therefore suitable for spreading over the crops or the land as fertilizer because of its purity.

4. Olive pellets and olive cake are available throughout the year with residue from production.

5. No burden on the environment by cutting down trees

6. A higher and better CO2 compensation

Application of Olive Pomace Pellets

The olive pomace pellets are most widely used as fuel in various industries for drying purposes and for hot water heating because of its thermal capacity. Besides, the pomace pellets are applied in power plant for electricity generation. The pellets are also suitable for heating olive mills and private house. Similarly, the ashes produced in combustion are used to manufacture fertilizer, given their high soluble potassium content.

The Biomass Magazines article titled “Electric Olives” reported that the first olive-powered electrical plant was built in Palenciana, Spain, in 1995. Since then, four more plants have been built in the Andalusia region. About 3 percent of Spain’s electricity consumption comes from biomass sources. Several power plants in England have been burning olive residue since 2003. England imports 175,000 metric tons of olive cake, making it the largest importer of olive residue in Europe. Major Italian energy company Enel cofires olive waste at its coal-fired plant in Brindisi, Italy, in the southern part of the country.
