Pocketboer

Start Date: 01 July 2017

End Date: 30 June 2019

Location: Leuven , Belgium

Objective:

The aim is to significantly increase the share of installations that run well in Flanders. An operator can lose 22,000 euros per year if his installation does not run smoothly. It is therefore of great importance for the profitability of the installation that the energy from the manure on these farms is used as optimally as possible. The ecological aspect also benefits from this. Pocket fermentation could be an interesting measure to also address greenhouse gas emissions in the storage of manure. Farmers and knowledge partners join forces to give a new boost to pocket fermentation at existing plants.
