...........Now, the waste product is what keeps the fire burning in the belly of the Beast

The deal works like this. The locals get their olives pressed for 6 Turkish Lira per kilo, half what you would pay for virgin olive oil at the shops or forfeit 10 per cent of their produce to the press owner for their olives to be pressed. The waste is dried and makes excellent boiler fuel at 50 TL per tonne when wet or 200TL per tonne when dry. Looks like I'll be getting four tonne of wet and drying it myself!..............
