Abatement Techniques for Reducing Emissions from Livestock Buildings (Paperback) (Mohamed Samer)
about this item
This book identifies future scientific research priorities for developing emissions inventories, emissions abatement techniques and mitigation strategies in order to improve and sustain livestock production to be in line with the climate change adaptation.
Animal production is a major source of atmospheric pollutants and greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide and ammonia, which contribute to global warming and climate change. The air pollutant emissions from agriculture have negative environmental impacts and pertinent political importance, as highlighted in both the Kyoto and Gothenburg Protocols.
This volume provides solutions on how to abate the emissions by using effective abatement techniques such as additives, covering manure storages, aerobic and anaerobic treatment, and dietary manipulation. Each chapter in the book provides up-to-date knowledge on abatement techniques allowing the reader to better understand the issues involved. The recent advances and perspectives in the field are discussed in this book.
