ENVIRONMENT

Although the pork industry is a small contributor to greenhouse emissions, the WA pork industry invests in technology that manages environmental impacts in an innovative and productive manner.  Examples include the capture of biogas which is produced by the anaerobic digestion of organic matter in effluent systems. Effluent is collected from pig sheds and conveyed to an anaerobic treatment system which could be a covered pond or a purpose built digester.
