Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01048

AcronymPig heat and straw

Proposal titleImplementation of a heat pump in welfare friendly straw systems for pigs to save

energy and to reduce gaseous emissions.

AbstractThe main objective of this project is to implement a heat pump in welfare friendlystraw

systems for pigs to save energy and to reduce emissions of ammonia and green house gases

to the environment. The heat pump extracts energy from the composting straw-manure

bed and this thermal energy is reused on the farm for heating piglet rooms, tap water and

the living rooms on the farm. The quantified goals are: -reduction of energy use for

heating on the farm to zero level; - reduction of ammonia emission and emission of green

house gases from the straw-manure bed by 50% ; - building of two prototypes of the

system. The optimal composting temperature and the optimal design of the system is

determined in preliminary experiments and by computer modelling. In the Exploratory

phase the following is necessary: - a desk study on potential heat demanders on pig farms; -

a market analysis; - a partner search; - the writing of a detailed Step 2 proposal.
