Developing a new and practical system to manage pig manure more efficiently, as a means to significantly reduce NH3 emissions and produce green energy.
Projects & Practice
Reconstruction plan for Protected Designation of Origin olive oil producers supported by Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding
A dairy company used RDP support to build a new wing on its factory in order to increase its production capacity. This investment strengthened the local supply chains and helps prevent the abandonment of the farming activity in the area.
An agricultural business used RDP support to improve its capacity to process and store its produce, while producing renewable energy from the sun.
A family farm invested in a biogas plant to produce renewable energy while also purchasing a new tomato harvester to improve the farm’s overall income.
The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
