Waste Management (PigBal)
PigBal 4 is a model for estimating waste outputs for the evaluation and design of piggery management systems and sustainable reuse areas. It can also be used to estimate volatile solids production for the purpose of estimating Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and is used to determine baseline calculations in the Carbon Farming Initiatives methodology “Destruction of methane generated from manure in piggeries”.
The latest version (PigBal_v4.099) was recently reviewed and revised in May 2018 to improve the accuracy of manure and GHG predictions. It is anticipated that the upgraded version of PigBal will be adopted nationally as the standard tool for providing realistic estimates of solids and major nutrients in piggery waste streams. It is also available for download from the Department of Environment and Energy website.
