Methodical clarification about utilization of local sources for protein animal feed for livestock and aquaculture in a circular bioeconomy in Western Norway
The project will lay the groundwork for research and knowledge about the use of local sources of protein based animal fodder in Sogn og Fjordane and Hordaland. It will be implemented through mapping and compilation of knowledge, followed by an assessment of the potential and suitability for utilization of local sources of protein based animal fodder for livestock and fish farming. We will collect, collate, organize and establish knowledge related to the main categories of sources for protein based animal fodder for livestock and fish farming. The work will be based on literature, document analysis, interviews/comments from relevant industries, knowledge transfers from already established environmental and working meetings of the project group. Assessments of greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants will be made on the basis of life cycle assessment.
