- Afterres2050 Anaerobic digestion -
Supporting ruminant breeding areas in transition

The example of the Fermes de Figeac in the Lot

Thursday , June 8, 2023 - 
from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

in videoconference



The development of anaerobic digestion presents many opportunities for farms and territories. As a producer of renewable energies and agro-ecological practices, its contribution to transitions is growing as studies report their results and the first feedback is shared. Whether in arable or livestock farming areas, methanation development models must be adapted to the diversity of contexts.

Faced with the decline in livestock farming already at work, how can the transitions of these systems be supported, what role can anaerobic digestion play, what effects are generated by its implementation and what concrete translation on a territory?

This webinar will address issues relating to the development of anaerobic digestion in farming areas. A second webinar will be organized on arable crop areas.


Program and speakers

The place of anaerobic digestion in the transitions and evolution of livestock farming in this context - Prospective vision with the Afterres2050 scenario

With Jérémie Priarollo – Manager of the anaerobic digestion activity at Solagro


Feedback from the Fermes de Figeac in the Lot – A model developed on 4 farms with suckler and dairy cattle herds

With Guillaume Virole – Manager of the anaerobic digestion department at Les Fermes de Figeac


Cross-technical perspectives on:

  • Management of fodder and CIVE stocks
  • Management of digestate inputs and the effects observed
  • Improving spreading practices and bringing storage structures up to standard
  • Economic impacts
  • ...
