Controlling hog waste while maintaining jobs
January 7, 2008
Missouri is dealing with a continued problem involving odor complaints against large livestock farms
. In general, livestock odors are compounded when large waste pits or lagoons are exposed to the air. These problems can be minimized through the use of geomembrane covers
which have the added benefit of allowing farmers to recover the waste methane
produced and use it to generate heat or electricity.
