An interesting initiative coming from the company Cemex is useful from many aspects. Pomace, which remains after the production of olive oil is a high quality biofuel that has not been adequately used. Until now it was used in agriculture as a high quality fertilizer, but more often it ended in illegal dump areas.
Its production process makes it dangerous in the kitchen , Whether sold as is, or mixed with virgin olive oil, or sold under fancy names, olive pomace oil consumption is risky. As mentioned earlier the production of olive pomace oil can produce benzoperene. Benzoperene can be found coal tar (a resultant of wood fire), volcano eruptions and cigarette smoke. It presents health risks such as accelerated aging of cells and increasing the probability of carcinogenic cell mutations.
