What actions do we take to protect the environment?
Environmental protection is an integral part of our business. To minimize the harmful impact on the environment and the local population, BALTIC PORK LLC pig breeding complexes are equipped with the most modern and efficient ventilation systems, as well as, pig manure is used for biogas production. It loses up to 80% of its characteristic odor, preserves and even improves all the positive qualities of organic fertilizer. Biogas plants also have many other positive effects on the environment. More detailed information can be found in the section “Biogas production”.
Transportation of pig manure to biogas plants and storage of the substrate created during biogas production takes place in a closed system. This helps to prevent the spread of residual odors in the environment. The introduction of the substrate into the soil occurs simultaneously with the spreading ,which ensures a minimum impact on the environment and the life of the local population.
The pig breeding complexes of BALTIC PORK LLC are closely supervised by state institutions that have established strict rules in the field of environmental protection. Any changes in the operation of the pig breeding complexes are subject to the procedures assessing their impact on the environment.
We highly value our customers and always strive to provide consistent quality and adhere to business ethics.
