we promote an ecological environment because ecological farming
means that producers must respect and protect the environment also.
In the elaboration of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, besides the oil,
we also obtain the orujo (the paste of the olives after
pressing). Part of the orujo is used to heat the rooms
and to obtain warm water (it is the BIOMASS), and the rest of the
orujo is sent to other companies that extract oil from
The alpechin which is the vegetable water from the olive
itself, is a very pollutant by-product for the acuifer systems due
to its high content in organic matter. See the organic fraction
in Appendix 1 and see the main components of the mineral fraction
in Appendix 2.
In our programme for promoting the environment the alpechin
is used as an organic fertilizer for sunflower, corn, barley and
olive tree farms.
