Project Integrated Approach to Ammonia and Methane


The sustainability of livestock farms is currently under scrutiny. In the coming years, emissions of methane and ammonia within livestock farming must be reduced. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is released during the breakdown of livestock feed in the cow's rumen, which is then emitted by the cow through belching and flatulence. Ammonia is a gas found in cow urine. How can the emissions of methane and ammonia be reduced in the short term?


This question is central to the project 'Integrated Approach to Ammonia and Methane' in collaboration with Aeres University of Applied Sciences in Dronten. This project investigates how livestock feed and optimal grassland management can contribute to reducing methane and ammonia emissions. We hope to apply this knowledge in our products and thus contribute to a future-proof and sustainable livestock farming.
