RESEARCH: Ammonia emission assessment of US swine facilities
With regard to ammonia emission on swine farms, the United States need better data collection, analysis and modelling. Scientists write that this is necessary to achieve better environmental policy. Ammonia (NH3) emitted from animal agriculture is the most important gaseous pollutant in agro-syste...
Low-protein pig diets reduce nitrogen emission
Feeding low protein diets to pigs can reduce nitrogen excretion, new research has found. This is encouraging for pig producers who will come under increasing pressure to reduce nitrogen emissions, although the impact on growth and fat deposition must also be taken into account. Three different di...
Research: A ventilation unit for pig farms that lowers ammonia emissions
Scientists at the State University of North Carolina and West Virginia University have developed a ventilation unit for pig farms that reduces ammonia emissions while heating the fresh air being pumped in. The additional costs of bio-filtration the researchers hope to offset by reducing the unit’...
Australia: Methane emissions stand to boost pig farmers' income
The Australian Government launched the first methodology to be approved under the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI), which will provide pig farmers with the opportunity to earn carbon credits for reducing methane emissions from manure. Visiting the Grantham Piggery west of Brisbane, Minister for A...
