1st edition - September 2009

The 28-pages report investigates the environment impact of feed production and feed use through 3 main topics, i.e. the sustainable management of feed resources (e.g. impact of soybean production, fishmeal & fish oil production and use, valorisation of by-products from the food and biofuel industry), climate change & energy use (methodology for calculation of the carbon foot print and evaluation of the environmental impact of production and consumption of feed, energy use in feed mills, etc.) and feed safety (detoxification of feed resources, preservation of hygiene status through good manufacturing practices). The report also provides examples of initiatives across the EU aiming at gathering information and also at providing operators with tools to improve their environmental performance.
