Abstract: Cultivated since ancient times, the olive tree is native to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Around 375 olive mills in the region are operated by a three phase continuous centrifugation process which yields pomace, olive oil and olive mill wastewater (OMW). The Project “Wastewater from Olive Oil Mills in Israel and Palestine: Interactions with Soil, Organic Contaminants and Mechanisms of Incorporation into Soil” (DFG: SCHA 849/13) investigates locational and seasonal dependent application scenarios of OMW to soil. The general objective is to understand processes and mechanisms of OMW-soil interaction affecting soil quality and their temporal dynamics in order to optimize OMW soil application for minimal negative effects.
