Evaluation of manure management and treatment technology for environmental protection and sustainable livestock farming in Europe.

MANEV is an European project of large-scale demonstration framed within the LIFE + Programme of Environment Policy and Governance, whose main objective is to improve environmental protection and sustainability of livestock promoting the use of treatment technologies in different saturated or surplus areas in the production of livestock manure across Europe. 

8 partners will assess 13 treatment technologies and manure management systems, located in 8 regions with high livestock production belonging to 4 European countries, following a common monitoring and assessment protocol that will be developed a long the project. The results of each assessment could be referred to CO2 equivalent units in order to assess its contribution to fight against climate change.



The aim of the project is to develop a new temperature measurement device with cellular connection and energy supply technologies based on power harvesting and a software tool responsible for generating alarms and suggest actions to be taken in order to prevent that the perishable product affected by the breaking of the cold chain becomes waste.

Each time that a breaking of the cold chain happens, the temperature profile is translated into a level of quality that will allow the distributor to react consistently so as to ensure the product quality and reduce waste potential. It seeks to reduce the waste of perishable food and the economic losses associated with the breaking of the cold chain in the distribution companies of these sector.


ADAW Project - Anaerobic Digestion For Animal Waste

Logo ADAW  ADAW -Anaerobic Digestion for Animal Waste- is a research project developed by an expert consortium in the field, led by Biogas Fuel Cell, S.A. and supported by the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) of European     Union under the Research for the Benefit of SMEs scheme. The project started the 1st of March of 2013 and its duration is two years.

Its main objective is to develop technologies which improve the anaerobic digestion process to allow an adequate management and valorization of slaughterhouse wastes in compliance with the Animal By-product (ABP) Regulation. Although these ABPs have a high theoretical methane potential, their low hydrolysis rates and the accumulation of ammonia and long chain fatty acids during the process make impossible their management through standard anaerobic digestion technologies.



LIFE VALPORC Pig carcasses recovery by their transformation into biofuels and organic fertilizers

Current management of the by-products generated by the pig sector, especially dead farm animals and slurries, constitute a serious environmental problem because the volume they represent and because the limited or null recovery that is carried out.

In most cases, the products obtained from the treatment of the carcasses are disposed by incineration or deliver to landfill.

The project aims to integrate different technologies to demonstrate, at a  representative scale, the viability and sustainability of alternative treatments for pig carcasses, recovering them in the form of biofuels, biogas and organic fertilizers.
