Trainers at the main French training base, Chantilly, have gone green and are soon to be the envy of their contemporaries around the world with a ground-breaking manure-disposal project. Faced with piles of manure, the bane of all trainers' lives, Chantilly professionals are working together to launch a pioneering scheme which looks set to solve all their problems and at the same time reap both environmental and financial rewards. The 10-million euro project, which should be operational towards the end of 2009, is at the cutting edge of technology and consists of using a process of methanization to convert the waste into electricity which will then be sold to the EDF (French Electricity Board), and into heat which will be used locally.

It takes considerable courage and determination to pull up your family roots and start from scratch in another country where competition is at its highest level. In addition, a new language must be mastered as well as a complete change of environment and culture. That is the challenge that Pia Brandt has set herself when she decided to leave Sweden last year and take on the giants of Chantilly on their home ground.
