Ammoniakvorming in mestdroogsystemen op legpluimveebedrijven met mestbandbeluchting = Ammonia production in manure drying systems at layer farms with manure belt aeration

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In this study, we investigated whether ammonia emissions from manure drying systems can be reduced by pre-drying the manure to ca. 55% of dry matter. This study shows that the ammonia emission of drying manure decreases with dry matter content. Pre-drying of manure to 55% of dry matter prevents the occurrence of high emissions in the first phase of the drying process and can reduce the emission from manure drying systems with 50–60%.
