    The aim is to make a model, which on commercial dairy and pig farms can estimate the turnover of carbon and the emissions of green house gasses. It is the goal to estimate these emissions from amount and composition of feed, the production of each category of animals, and the emissions from stable and storage.
    The project is funded by the Danish Agricultural Agency.Description

  2. Annual update of normative values for N, P and K in animal manure

    Christian Friis Børsting, Martin Tang Sørensen, Peter Lund, Anne Louise Frydendahl Hellwing, Marleen Elise van der Heide, Peter Kai & Michael Jørgen Hansen

    Every year the normative values for N, P and K in animal manure is updated. These values are based upon mean values from commercial farms for feed intake and composition, as well as for the production for a large variety of farm animal categories. Furthermore, literature values are used for the composition of the animal products (meat from different species and eggs), whereas milk composition is measured on farms. Emission factors from stables and storage of manure are taken from the literature.
    The project is funded by the Danish Agricultural Agency as part of AU's public sector service.Description

  3. Emission Control: Methods and Technologies for Agriculture

    Anders Feilberg & Martijn Heck

    Chemical technology and new sensors for purifying the air will make it possible for farmers to control ammonia emission at the same time as remediating odour from livestock production. This can contribute to a significant reduction of the total air pollution in the Western world.Description
