A RESULT OF A SYMBIOTIC INTERACTION.

AbstractCoat sow residues (hair of animals) can not be recovered and recycled becauseserious

technological difficulties for its treatment by any method considered.That is why coat sow

residues are, at the end, dumped into urban landfills. In some cases those organic residues

suppose up to 80% of the whole volume of wastes located in landfillsDeveloping a

profitable methodology to transform it in compost will solve this problem. Moreover, the

use of such a rich product could generate a compost with a high added value because high

nitrogen levels of this residue. The actual tendency on the utilisation of compost by

farmers is growing up. This methodology permits the reduction of the landfill pressure

through the recycle of the organic residues. The implementation of this methodology

suppose the symbiotic collaboration between slaughters/tanneries, transformation

companies and farmers that will close a cycle of life where should generate a considerable

number of specialised employees
