Methane Recovery Project Aben, Wanroij, North Brabant, The Netherlands


Agriculture has shaped the rural landscape of North Brabant and Limburg for centuries, with the swine industry being particularly significant. These provinces house most of the Netherlands’ swine farms, exceeding local soil nitrogen absorption limits, preventing complete manure disposal on fields. Unlike other regions’ large-scale farms, North Brabant has mainly medium-sized farms that often merge for efficiency. Swine farming drives the local economy but causes environmental issues like greenhouse gas emissions, odour, and contamination. Excess manure must be transported to areas needing fertilizers.
