Project

Dairy Cattle Intensive Livestock has a vital social and economic importance for the Region between Douro and Minho in Portugal. However, it produces high loads of effluents with polluting and environmental potential, as is the case of leachate (mixture of urine, faeces and water from various sources). These effluents have high levels of N, P and K, and micronutrients, such as Cu and Zn, as well as pathogenic microorganisms. On the other hand, slurry continues to be a fertilizer resource for the soil, increasing the content of organic matter and nutrients available and improving its structure.

AVELEDA S.A. has been looking for sustainable solutions that make the exploration of its forests an asset for the company. This is why Aveleda has taken the initiative to create an innovative model for effluent, and forest land management with a view of “circular economy” and “zero waste” on the scale of the unit of exploration, converting effluents into an opportunity and an economic and environmental added value. Go-Biochorume is an initiative promoted by the company AVELEDA S.A. with public and private partners like: National Institute of Agricultural and Veterinary Research (INIAV), Portuguese Catholic University – School of Biotechnology (UCP-ESB), National Federation of Cooperatives of Milk Producers (FENALAC) and the Forest Association of Portugal (FORESTIS).
