Production of Hog Meat under the Concepts of Clean Technology

Gustavo Graciano Fonseca    

Abstract: The hog meat is the most produced and consumed in the entire world. Parallel, due to hog feces and to the residues begotten by cold stores, pollution has been a major problem, faced by both developed and under development countries, especially, under intensive production. Governments, industries and researchers have gathered in order to minimize the problem of pollution generated from this activity. The southern region of Brazil is the main producer of hogs, in addition to such position we find the reality of the water’s quality in the major producer cities. The high consume of water for each processed hog and the effect of the creation of these, with the generation of feces and the elimination of compounds with high ammonia concentration and the consequent result on the atmosphere and waters, does not suit with the current tendencies for environmental and social management. The result of such production may contribute to a loss of life quality. In a general way, big and small producers are searching for an effective strategy for the minimization of pollution, maintaining the market. The majority of strategies converge for the utilization of the potential from the pollutant itself, valuation of the hog, minimizing residues during the process, consequently reducing the environmental impact. The present study features production of hog’s meat processing under the concepts of clean technology, doing a presentation of the involved steps, suggesting procedures for a minimization of residues, valuation of raw materials and generation of new products.
