Project Title

Testing of an ammonia sorbent for emission reduction from pig manure under practical conditions

Project description

The decrease of ammonia emissions from the agricultural sector is urgently needed to reduce the eutrophication of non-agricultural ecosystems, indirect nitrous oxide emissions, particulate matter release and soil acidification, as well as to improve the N use efficiency of manure used. Possible mitigation measures focus on ammonia losses from livestock housing as well as during slurry application in the field. To bind ammonia a sorbent material based on carboxylic acid derivatives is available. To derive recommendations for the application of this sorbent in animal as well as in plant production investigations are carried out under practical farming conditions focusing on production (e.g. daily weight gain of the fattening pigs, N uptake and yield of wheat) as well as on economic aspects. The objective of the project is the development and evaluation of a practicable strategy for farmers to substantially reduce ammonia emissions at farm level. The entire value chain from pig fattening via application of the resulting manure on the field to the final assessment of the produced wheat as a basis for feeding stuff in pig production is considered.
