Recent Achievement

1- Dr Abudl-Fatah Qaraman published an article the the energy research team at Israa University -Gaza, which focuses its research efforts on how to use local resources to provide energy in a country that suffers from a severe lack of resources, has succeeded in developing compound fuel that relies on the olive pomace and has a high thermal value.

 Experiments were conducted on several mixtures of this fuel, represented by 20% of Alzibar water, 40% diesel and 40% dried olives, in addition to activated and auxiliary chemicals that can be used in heating stations and thermal furnaces.

 Dr. Ibrahim Al-Hausaina, a specialist in agricultural engineering and one of the members of the research team, explained that the lack of energy sources led them to search for alternatives, most notably "composite fuel with an olive pomace", indicating that it may be a cheap substitute for diesel used in power plant.
