Finally, more than a year after the Council of Ministers for Sustainability pronounced favourably on the Final Draft, the Odour Emission Regulation for the Pig Sector in Chile is now published in the Chilean Official Journal, and therefore, as of today, there is a new legislation and odour limits for the pig sector in Chile.
The Odour Emission Regulation for the Pig Sector will be applicable for the whole Chilean territory, for the emitting sources defined as breeding, fattening and/or reproduction plants of pigs whose number is equal to or greater than 750 animals and whose weight is greater than 25 kilograms. This new regulation defines three sets of facilities. Those between 750 and 25,000 animals (small units), those between 25,000 and 50,000 (medium units), and those over 50,000 animals (large units). In addition, certain differences are also made between existing and new farms.
