Confined Feeding Operations

The CASA Confined Feeding Operations Project Team worked within the CASA consensus process to develop a strategic plan to improve the management of air emissions from existing and future CFOs in Alberta and to improve relationships between stakeholders.

In developing the plan, the team considered the following principles:

  • continuous improvement and pollution prevention to protect air quality;
  • prevention of short and long-term adverse effects on human, animal and ecosystem health due to air emissions; and
  • assurance that air quality recommendations maximize social, economic, environmental and health benefits and minimize social, economic, environmental and health costs.

The CASA Board of Directors approved the Confined Feeding Operations Project Team’s final report and recommendations on March 25, 2008. The report was released on April 21, 2008.

This team is in abeyance. A list of team members will be added after the team has reconvened. Until then, working group members are provided.
