1ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT IN OLIVE OIL PRODUCTIONEnvironmental Management in Olive Oil ProductionIn the past few decades, the production of olive oil production has increaseddrastically. The production includes two types of centrifuge systems. Both the researchpapers ‘Assessment of carbon footprint and energy performance of the extra virgin olive oilchain in Umbria, Italy` and `Adding Value to Olive Oil Production Through Waste andWastewater Treatment and Valorisation: The Case of Greece` deal with the pollution thatoccurs during the oil production. Lastly, the research articles give an in-depth analysis oncarbon footprint and energy footprint during extra virgin olive oil production and thegeneration of solid and water waste from the olive-pomace industries respectively.The given article ‘Assessment of carbon footprint and energy performance of theextra virgin olive oil chain in Umbria, Italy` provides an assessment of carbon footprint andenergy footprint during the extraction of extra virgin olive oil. The research is centred in anItalian province, Perugia. The first research article is based on the study of olive cultivation,extra virgin olive oil production, packaging, storage and exportation to the foreign countries.The storage requires -18, which emits a certain amount of carbon monoxide to the°Catmosphere. The article tried to evaluate the intensity of the impact on the environmentthrough ISO certified life cycle assessment method or LCA (Rinaldi, Barbanera and Lascaro2014). The LCA result showed that distribution of extra virgin olive oil contributes thelargest amount of carbon footprint and energy footprint in the environment. The oliveproduction emits 86% of production of extra virgin olive oil along with packaging in theglass bottle and electricity emit 73% of the greenhouse gas in the environment (Salomone andIoppolo 2012).The second research article `Adding Value to Olive Oil Production through Waste andWastewater Treatment and Valorisation: The Case of Greece`, deals with the production of
