What is bad about the production of Olive Oil?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are a number of negative environmental impacts associated with the farming of olives for olive oil, as well as with the actual processing of the olives into oil. Many of the more modern olive farms rely on pesticides, heavy irrigation, fertilizers, and mechanical harvesting. These methods can often result in soil erosion as well as contamination by the pesticides and fertilizers. These things can lead to desertification of land.

    Furthermore, the processing of olives can sometimes result in the contamination of water sources and sewage systems because the by-products have high organic contents. If the materials are not treated properly, they can cause serious environmental damage.
