Around 20000 m3 of olive mill wastewater is produced annually in the Albanian districts of Tirana and Vlora (respectively 8ton and 12ton). This wastewater cannot be sent to ordinary wastewater treatment systems, because in this wastewater are 1689 ton BOD5 and 1501 ton polyphenols. Thus, safe disposal of this waste is of serious environmental conce...

The walnut is classified as a strategic species for human nutrition and is included in the FAO’s priority list of plants. Walnut, (Juglans regia L.), propagation is more difficult compared to most fruit species. Due to walnut heterozygosity, propagation by seeds does not lead to full inheritance of all the characteristics of a certain variety. Th...
