From Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
As ecological approaches to reduce the impact of human activities on the environment multiply, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) Research and Development Centre in Sherbrooke, Quebec, continues to innovate in this area.
Scientists are expanding the vast experience of the Sherbrooke Research and Development Centre in the valorization of manure and slurry through the Livestock waste technology research platform. It is supported by a new biomethanation plant, called a biodigester, which uses micro-organisms, such as bacteria, to break down and ferment organic matter.
