This WG will evaluate present and newly developed housing systems and emission reduction technologies with an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) approach at farm level. In this way pollution swapping from e.g. ammonia emissions to GHG emissions or from the building to the storage can be prevented. In this environmental assessment also the effects on the indoor air quality will be evaluated.
The objective is to evaluate and compare in an integrative approach different strategies of feeding /housing/ manure management on emissions of ammonia and GHG
- Enviromental assessment of livestock structures
- Environmental assessment of innovative technologies.
- Determine most suitable measures to reduce ammonia and GHG emissions for the different regions in Europe
