"If all the cattle in the world joined together to start their own country, they would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases"
Agricultural technology has made great strides in converting farm waste into renewable fuel and natural fertiliser, but in Europe, this is only widely available to large-scale farming operations.
We believe that efficient waste management solutions should be widely available and has set ourselves on a mission to help small farms to improve resource management sustainability and agricultural waste recycling while enabling their autonomy and self-sufficiency.
At present, the EU produces about 1.4 billion tonnes of manure per year from livestock farming operations, while this sector accounts for 10% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions globally.
