Your Lower Neuse Riverkeeper, Katy Langley, was interviewed by WNCT about the hog waste produced by Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) in Eastern North Carolina. CAFOs produce large amounts of animal waste that is then sprayed on fields, making its way into our rivers and causing a myriad of environmental issues. These CAFOs also release large amounts of methane gas into the atmosphere. A new technology is being implemented to turn these gasses into fuel, however, it is not a solution for pollution.
