Abstract

Literature review was done about methods of reduction of ammonia emissions and GHG from livestock production. Many techniques require high investments costs by low reducing level of emissions. Among all known methods, the most effective is slurry cooling and decreasing slurry pH to obtain high ammonia emission reductions. When talking about GHG, anaerobic digestion and slurry separation are good solutions. Regarding sustainable development in agriculture production, not only environmental effects, but also economy is important.

The study conducted as part of the project BIOGAS&EE (acronym) financed by the National Centre for Research and Development within the BIOSTRATEG program, contract No BIOSTRATEG1 /269056/5/NCBR/2015 dated 11 August 2015.
