- Organic pig farm
In order to maintain an extremely high level of sanitary safety, on a pig farm Napredak in Stara Pazova All In All Out management system was applied. This system means that groups of animals simultaneously enter certain phase of production, as well as leaving it at the same time, which significantly facilitates managing the farm. In accordance with European regulations, the animals are allowed to move freely. Climatic conditions are controlled and maintained at the optimum level, which enables the achievement of maximum results in production. Applied technology involves extremely high ecological level, primarily in the treatment of wastewaters. Manure from the farm is further processed and used for fertilizing fields, so that wastewater is practically nonexistent. In this way the pollution of local waterways is prevented, all in accordance with national and EU legislation in this field. At the pig farm Napredak the plant for utilization of biomass residues of crop production is in operation as energy source. Regardless of the fact that this way of obtaining energy is based on biomass combustion, it was found that the dissolution rate of CO2 is less than the amount of the gas that plants absorbed in the vegetation period.
- Wastewater treatment
Complete waste generated during meat processing in Yuhor factory in Jagodina, so-called condemned (bones, intestines, skin...) and fresh blood are collected and transported to pound. Wastewater, so-called liquid waste, is going through the pipelines into the tank in which the biological processing is performed, and only then it is discharged into the public sewer.
- Production of flour without negative effects for the environment
In 2009. in the flour and pasta industry Danubius, the most modern mill for wheat processing in the region is installed. The mill by Swiss manufacturer Bühler, guarantees a high level of sanitary protection in wheat processing, enables flour sterilization, as well as elimination of impurities and larvae of insects, it is highly energy-efficient (twice lower power consumption), and most importantly, does not toss dirt.
- Saving water and energy
On Delta Agrar’s apple orchard in Čelarevo, on more than 200 hectares, system of irrigation drop by drop was introduced. Embedded software accurately monitors the needs of the plants for watering according to its development stage and weather conditions, which is why the water is spent rationally. In all business units of Delta Agrar the plan is that all waste is used to generate electricity which would be used for the purposes of company. Sustainability of all production programs of Delta Agrar is ensured through the ecological aspect, applying the most stringent regulations in the field of environmental protection.
