Environment Theme Center

Generate and develop products and research which promote qualitative and quantitative maintenance of natural resources linked to swine and poultry production; acting in He reduction of the polluting power of swine and poultry productive chain, adapting and developing management technologies, treatment and recycling of residues, the evaluation of the environmental impact in various ecosystems and in production systems common to the swine and poultry production, in the environmental management of properties and hydrographic basin, in environmental education of the players in the swine and poultry productive chain, to outline models and policies for the development of swine and poultry production, prioritizing the conservation of the environmental quality.


Main repercussions of the research of the Theme Center

1) Environmental research for swine and poultry producers;
2) Contributions to the progress of the knowledge about biological reactors using swine dejects (biodigestors, UASB, RBA, etc.) in the removal of the organic charge as well as nutrients;
3) Purification and energetic use of biogas;
4) Introduction of research of technology for the management of swine dejects through the solid route – sobresposta bedding and compost of dejects;
5) Supply the technical subsidies for the revision and update of environmental legislations relative to the swine and poultry chain;
6) Transmission of technology and management practices and treatment of residues in swine and poultry production, aiming at environmental improvement in regions with high concentration of these activities;
7) Participating in political forums aiming at supplying technical support in questions relative to pollution caused by the swine and poultry productive chain.
