EU Research “Making the most of pig manure”
This is an EU financed study to end with the cliché on Pigs. The research was lead between 2009 and 2013 in Spain (Coordinator),Switzerland, France and Finland.
"Although pigs are actually one of world's cleanest creatures – despite their reputation to the contrary – cleaning up after them is a challenging task. The bulk, gas emissions and associated odours give pig manure a bad name. But if you know how to extract them, there are value nutrients secreted in the slurry. The EU-funded EfficientHeat project has advanced waste disposal while giving pig farmers the potential to turn manure into money".
