Project description

Technology for methane abatement in agriculture

The EU’s 10 million farms contribute 10 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. Methane makes up nearly half (43 %) of emissions from the sector. However, there are no technical solutions for methane abatement. Since agriculture is the largest source of methane emissions, scientists are searching for efficient and cost-affordable solutions to reduce emissions. For instance, methane is emitted by cow belching and manure decomposition. The EU-funded CANMILK project will use non-thermal plasma technology to develop simple-to-use, low maintenance technology for methane abatement. The project will deliver simple and efficient equipment for dairy and meat cattle barns, and useful insight into the socio-economic and environmental feasibility of plasma-based methane abatement.
