This project aimed to deliver improved environmental sustainability and planning outcomes for the egg industry by updating the existing guidelines to reflect changes in the industry since its first publication in 2008.
This project was conducted to develop an S-factor formula to be integrated into the revision of the Environmental Guidelines for the Egg Industry. A robust and science-based separation distance (S-factor) formula will provide improved planning and development outcomes for the egg industry and will provide greater certainty that community amenity impacts can be managed for new and expanding layer farms.
A Life Cycle Assessment model was used to provide a review of the efficiency of Australian egg production with respect to greenhouse gas emissions, water use and energy use.
