Water cradle-to-cradle (C2C) in intensive livestock farming
01/2013 to 12/2013
The H2O-C2C project wants to provide sustainable alternatives for the water supply in intensive livestock farming, such as the valorization of low value water resources, in response to a possible future (ground)water shortage in Flanders. By the use of constructed wetlands, manure gets biologically converted to dischargeable greywater. The H2O-C2C project subsequently researches the purification of this greywater to reusable high quality water (e.g. drinking water for pigs) by means of membrane filter techniques. The project is a cooperation between UGent and VLAKWA, VITO, Ivaco, Innova Manure, Inagro, DLV-InnoVision and De Watergroep.
