Australian piggery first to go carbon neutral

Text size Aa Aa

Harnessing the power of animal waste to become a carbon neutral farm; that’s what a piggery – home to 22,000 pigs – in Australia is doing.

The farm is set up to collect manure which is piped through what is described as a ‘methane lagoon’ before it is put into a bio gas converter.

The owners no longer have to pay power bills and expect to make around 64,000 euros a year from selling their excess electricity.
