BIOLOGICAL AMMONIA REMEDIATION IN LIVESTOCK FARMING

Project description

Solution to minimise ammonia emissions from their source

Atmospheric ammonia emission (NH3) has great environmental implications due to its crucial role in the ecosystem and global nitrogen cycle and as an important source of particulate matter formation. Ammonia emissions from manure are associated with animal disease, mortality, and lower quality of dairy products. Existing solutions do not eliminate ammonia emissions from their source. The EU-funded NITROBIO project aims to obtain the validation of the first solution designed to work directly on the source of ammonia emissions with substantial efficiency of above 80 % up to nearly 100 %. The solution increases the natural process occurring in the manure when a microbial enzymatic mix is applied directly to it, accelerating the natural transformation processes. Once NH3 is transformed, its emission stops.
