Science - Agriculture / Olive oil production
Italian term or phrase: elaiotecnica
A course to be held for people in various positions in some way connected to the olive oil production chain

il corso tratterà argomenti relativi alla tecnica della produzione di olio ma anche di prodotti che possono costituire delle interessanti opportunità di investimento nel settore olivicolo, quali le olive conservate e prodotti derivati dalle olive

I cannot find 'elaiotechnics' in any dictionary and on the Net I find it used only by Italian- and Spanish- speaking contributors. Can anyone tell me whether it is a 'real' word, maybe a neologism, or whether I should be using an explanatory title such as '(Study of) Oil and olive products'?

Many thanks in advance

Notes to answerer
Asker: many thanks, mediamatrix! Also for the wide range of references.

Asker: thanks for your help anyway. Of course you are right that elaiotecnologia is a generic term, but in my context, as I had specified, it was all and only about olives. I chose texjax also because he was 2 mins earlier submitting, but honorary 4 points to you too!

agree  BdiL: I agree 100 percent that it is a generic term, since elaios just means oil (not in the sense of "mineral oil" evidently!). Maurizio
