In the past, Maarten van der Velden, owner of breeding sow farm Veva, was mainly busy coordinating the construction of a new piglet house and growing his farm in animal numbers. Over five years ago, the turnaround came and the international pig farmer decided to focus more and more on sustainability: solar panels, heat recovery and manure processing.
During the construction of the new piglet house, it was therefore decided to take the step towards heat recovery. Together with Inno+, the Asten-Heusden-based pig farmer concluded that implementing an air scrubber and heat pump could be very interesting for his business.
The use of underfloor heating allows Van der Velden to offer piglets a comfortable temperature all year round, even without the use of ambient heating or gas.
