The main objective of LivAGE Action is to enhance international discipline cooperation for exchanging ideas and knowledge, sharing good practices, assess technologies that could result in reducing the emissions of GHGs and ammonia from livestock buildings and thus to lead to a more environmental friendly and sustainable livestock production. Focus should be on methodology improvement and harmonization of measurements and modelling aspects. The results will be made readily available in order to significantly enhance awareness in the livestock sector of the current hazard level and the perspectives related to the future.
The consortium of this project is interdisciplinary with experts and research teams in real-time monitoring, modelling, design and control, animal sciences, welfare and nutrition, instrumentation and automation of building environments and LCA. The mitigation of emissions of GHGs and nitrogen compounds is among the DG Environment priorities and also seriously underlined by IPCC. Therefore, considering the continuous interest demonstrated by European agricultural and environmental end-users, the commitment demonstrated by past and current projects, the multiplicity of involved countries and the links with ongoing activities, the international platform to develop this COST Action and to fulfil its goals is ensured
