Biolectric converts manure into energy, thereby reducing greenhouse gas and nitrogen emissions.
This is episode 2 of the series 'Trends Gamechangers'.
The Trends Impact Podcast takes you on an exciting journey through the environmental and societal achievements of companies making a positive impact on our planet. Over nine episodes, winners and nominees of the Trends Impact Awards 2022 share their stories. The host is Britt Buseyne, a Trends columnist and founder of the podcast Sustainababbels. In each episode, an expert from Antwerp Management School provides analysis and background.
In this episode, Britt Buseyne discusses with Klaas Vanhee from Biolectric and Ewald Van den Auwelant from Antwerp Management School. With their biogas installations or pocket digesters, Biolectric makes it easier for pig and dairy farmers to engage in sustainable business practices. Last year, they expanded their technology with a nitrogen stripper, enabling farmers to convert on-farm manure into green energy and a substitute for synthetic fertilizers. This serves as a significant lever for addressing climate and nitrogen-related issues while also providing an additional source of income for an industry under pressure.
The Trends Impact Podcast is an initiative by Trends and Antwerp Management School. The Trends Impact Awards are organized by Trends and PWC, in collaboration with Antwerp Management School.
This podcast is in Dutch.
