Belgorod region is the leader in the pork and poultry production . Subsequently it became the powerful generator of harmful wastes - poultry generates over 1 million dung , swines - nearly 1.8 million cubicmeter of liquid dung a year. As the result the environment is infected by methane, carbon dioxide, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide endangering the human health.
The governor of the region has established a council responsible for biotechnology and bioenergetics development. It is envisaged to build devices which would process the agricultural wastes . The project is expected to be profitable, to create the market of the own organic fertilizers and to give new jobs.
