This project is part of a broader effort to develop a descriptive grid of agricultural biomass residues to support decisions about how they can optimally be recovered. The specific aim is to go on a short mission to Belgium to share expertise and discuss available data on biomass characteristics. The project complements other projects on biomass use in Québec and Mexico and the use of agricultural residues to produce greenhouse heating oil and pelleted feed for pigs.
Develop a digital tool for quickly identifying the best way to recover agricultural residues based on environmental, technical, economic, and energy-related criteria
This international collaboration will contribute to the optimal repurposing of agricultural byproducts.

This project will draw recommendations to reduce fugitive emissions through technical means or agricultural practices.
When designing tanks, the total volume of material to be stored must be calculated. This guide provides a comprehensive calculation method that takes into account volumes of bedding added as well as feed and water losses.

This project addresses the risks posed by the spreading of manure and emissions released into the environment to the biosecurity of farms, as well as to the health of workers and nearby populations.
