Discharge for irrigation in plantation
Due to the scarcity of global water resources, recovery of wastewater has become a worldwide trend. Taiwan, constrained by its geographical environment and climate, is ranked as the 18th among countries with water scarcity in the world.
The livestock farming industry is often located in rural areas and developed alongside agriculture and fisheries. Given that the livestock excrement is naturally high in organic and nitrogenous substances, if it meets the effluent standards after treatment, it could provide the water and nutrients needed for crops, and reduce groundwater extraction and the demand for agricultural irrigation and drainage. This creates a multi-win situation for the livestock industry, farmers, and the water environment.
