The introduction of the two-phases extraction systems of olive oil require a exhaustive control of the oil contained in the produced olive-pomace. The analytical techniques in use are not useful for online analysis. The feasibility of near-infrared technique for the analysis of oil and moisture in two-phases olive-pomace is studied. The laboratory results are satisfactory so the development of a online NIR-based sensor for olive-pomace can be proposed.
