Projects & Practice
Developing a new and practical system to manage pig manure more efficiently, as a means to significantly reduce NH3 emissions and produce green energy.
An example of an initiative promoting energy efficiency that addresses climate change through targeted actions at grassroots level.
A family farm used RDP support to switch from cattle to turkey breeding in response to market demand.
A dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
