SPANISH RESEARCH REWARDS THE PROTOREACTOR

The results of the Extraoil project, conducted in Spain by the Fundacion Tecnova research technology center, together with the producers association Asaja Almeria, confirm how the Pieralisi Protoreactor guarantees superior quality extra virgin olive oil, with a reduction in consumption and time.

The study, developed in the Oro del Desierto farm, allowed to evaluate the Protoreactor process parameters, comparing the results during two production campaigns. The outcome is: process improvement both from an energy and time point of view; cost reduction; higher yield values; higher polyphenol content (+ 8.5%); and adaptability of the machine to any oil mill already in operation.
