Nancy Quaranta

Olive stones is a waste that had been widely used vas biofuel in diverse industries and as heating in homes, hotels and municipal facilities. The crushed olive pit is also used as an adsorbent after being converted to active carbon by increasing its specific surface area. This material, in the form of powder or granular, has various applications as a filter for water treatment in chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
