San Jose, Costa Rica
The focus of this report, prepared for El Centro Nacional de Produccion mas Limpia, is on the prevention of water contamination from Agro-Industry in Costa Rica, specifically on hog farms. The paper discusses waste water management as well as the current and potential use of biogas technology on medium-sized hog farms. The data showed that biogas technology could easily be implemented on many farms, producing financial benefits to the farmer as well as significantly preventing water contamination. Based on an analysis of the data, we made recommendations that include educating the farmers about biogas technology and about the advancement of current finance systems.
