BalticCOMPASS is not only about experts’ talk and reports; we actually invest in the technologies we recommend so that they are demonstrated in order to encourage others to do similar investments.
One of the investments, dealing with mobile slurry separation on Bornholm, is now in place, and Bornholm regional TV informed about the investment project on 12 June, as a preparation to the democratic festival for politicians, policy makers, interest organizations and many other, “Folkemødet”, which took place on the following days from 14 to 17 June, and where several organized debates dealt with environment and agriculture.

The clip about the mobile separation can be seen at this link - http://www.tv2bornholm.dk/nettv/nyeste.aspx?videoID=31716 – about 7:48 after start of the programme. The clip (in Danish language) shows the chairman of the established cooperative “Skruepresserforeningen”, pig farmer Carsten Nielsen as well as the local plant production adviser, Carsten Mouritsen, explaining the benefits of the innovative slurry separation technology, and its positive effects on the environment and the farming, as well as on the operations of the regional biogas plant at Bornholm, Biokraft, which has a high need for more biomass to fill up its capacity.
The Bornholm isle has an important role in BalticDEAL, and the investment project in mobile separation is to a high extent based on a good cooperation in Denmark between BalticDEAL and BalticCOMPASS.
