Water Recycling on Livestock Farms
Water Quality – The solution should purify the water enough for it to be reused for production processes, based on local industry standards (which differ from country to country).
Energy Requirements – The solution should use significantly less energy compared to traditional water treatment and RO systems.
Cost Effectiveness – The solution should cost less to procure and operate than traditional water treatment and RO systems.
Scalability – The solution should be scalable to accommodate the diverse needs of poultry, farm and processing operations of varying sizes.
Ease of Integration – It should be easy to integrate the solution into existing poultry, farm or processing operations without causing significant disruptions.
Japfa is not interested in solutions that solely rely on conventional reverse osmosis systems, as these have high energy requirements and thus a large carbon footprint. Additionally, solutions that do not address the affordability of the solution or offer substantial energy savings will not be considered.
The solution will be piloted on one or more of Japfa’s farms in Indonesia, and should be completed within six months.
Resources and incentives
Japfa is providing funding of up to S$50,000 and project management support for a trial.
Enterprise Singapore is augmenting this support with a S$20,000 POC development grant. This POC development grant will be made available to solution providers, both local and foreign, provided that they engage in innovation development activities in Singapore.
