P48I3 The ESPO Environmental Report 2018 (European Sea Ports Organization) continues to classify air quality as the main priority in the environmental management of European ports, a position that it has maintained since 2013.

   Aware of this, the APB has been working intensely since the year 2016 to know the level of air quality of its ports, as well as the possible relationship with the port activity that takes place in them, in alignment with the Environmental Policy of the APB.

P11Ip   A device developed by Aryballe Technologies (Grenoble – France) and based on Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) imaging was used to measure odorous compounds. One advantages of such a device is to propose a large number of receptors inside the measurement cell.

   This aspect allows a distinction capability that cannot be obtained with classical instruments. Presented results show a strong capacity of distinction of compounds even isomers and a detection limit dependent on the family of compounds and the size of the molecule.

P05I3   In the industrial production of olive oil, both solid wastes and those produced from their incineration are a serious environmental problem since only 20% w/w of the fruit becomes oil and the rest is waste, mainly orujo and alperujo. 

   A key aspect to transforming these wastes into an important source of energy such as pellets is to recognize the most appropriate time of the year for waste drying, with the objective of minimizing the environmental impact of the volatile compounds contained in the waste.
