Zero Waste Pig (ZWaP)

An odorless farming system that efficiently converts pig waste into alternative fuel (biogas) and organic fertilizer for crops. It directly addresses environmental concerns over hog production, as well as growing demand and awareness for more effective waste management and reduction.

One of the smart farming concepts piloted at FutureRice Farm under the joint collaboration of CLSU and the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) that started in January 2018.
