Integral olive kernel elaboration with electricity generation, compared with actual system of obtaining olive virgin oil
Keywords:Autogeneration, Electricity, Gasification, Olive oil, Olive
A future solution for treatment of the olive and obtaining olive virgin oil is presented. The energy demands for which are supplied by a generation system, that also feeds other phases of manufacture of by-products, such as "orujos" drying or extraction of the residual oil contained in them. For this purpose gasifier equipment is needed, whose major fuel is plain olive stone, although "orujos" with 20% humidity could also be used. This system produces a gas which is introduced in a combustion engine connected to a generator, harnessing the electricity created to supply the plant itself. The thermal energy surplus serves to generate and sell electrical energy to distribution grid.
