Responsible manure management, high yield crops
We maintain a high focus on the proper management of the manure resulted from our pig production. For this purpose, our group has made important and continuous investments in the development and implementation of modern and professional natural fertilizer handling systems.
Our company uses advanced control and monitoring systems for storing and applying natural fertilizers, in full compliance with environmental standards in the field.
As part of Premium Porc Group’s responsible approach to the environment, we focus on applying natural fertilizers from the farms to crop fields near them, thus also reducing CO2 emissions.
In the long run, this strategy helps us to manage the manure coming from the farm efficiently and to provide natural fertility to soils. Practices in this field, in all activity sequences, including the storage, transport and application of natural fertilizers, are assumed at group level as an integral part of the business model of Premium Porc Group.
Each farm has its own lagoons for storing the manure
The manure generated from the farms is sorted by a mechanical separator that divides the solid fractions from the liquid fractions. The odorless solid fraction is stored on specially designed concrete structures, and afterwards used as natural fertilizer.
The liquid fraction is stored in sealed and covered lagoons, with a capacity of up to 21 000 m3 per each lagoon. The liquid fraction is transported and applied to agricultural land as a natural fertilizer, using modern machinery.
The lagoons are produced and certified in Denmark and they are a key element in assuring proper manure management and protection of the environment.
