Synopsis

Brittany, France’s first agricultural region is using its intensive farming industry to launch several animal waste-based methane production plants.

Treating manure and developing renewable energy: a program several of their European partners have been defending and yet in some cases have been competing over for close to thirty years.

This positive commitment to address the intensive farming polluting waste however, does not call into question the model of consumption we have developed since the end of World War II.

Is it only smoke and mirrors to continue the productivism at all cost system or an opportunity for farmers to regain their central place on the land?
