​​The Proposal

​The proposal is for the construction and operation of an abattoir processing up to 200 head cattle and sheep per week and a maximum annual production of 4,000 tonnes of meat per year. 

It is proposed that waste produced by the abattoir will be treated in a biodigester to generate biogas to supplement abattoir electricity requirements.  If this does not prove to be feasible waste will be treated in covered ponds. Effluent will be irrigated on the site.  A containerised composting process with air filtration and odour control is also being considered for treatment of other solid wastes.
