Janssen / Netherlands

The poultry farmer Bart Janssen from the Dutch province of Drente produces 1.6 million poultries per year. The innovative company do not only want to produce efficiently but also sustainably. When raising the chicks, he relies on stress avoidance - the chicks that grow up at his farm also hatch on his farm. For this sensitive breeding a reliable, flexible heat supply is of particular importance. That is why they decided to use the plant technology of AGRO Forst & Energietechnik. Its stables are now heated with 1,500 kW of green, renewable energy from woodchips. Wood chips from the province of Drenthe and Groningen are used to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible.
