Duurzaamheids-ethische toetsing van methaanreducerende technische maatregelen: Evaluatie van technische maatregelen ten aanzien van de integrale verduurzaming van de veehouderij

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


This research makes an inventory of technical measures which are able to reduce the methane emissions of the Dutch livestock production systems (i.e. cattle and pig farming): breeding, composition and quality of feed, use of inhibitors, frequent manure removal from barns, manure additives, manure mixing and aeration, manure cooling, anaerobic digestion, methane oxidation. Through a literature study and expert consultation a qualitative assessment framework has been developed and applied to evaluate different sustainability and ethical aspects of these measures. This has been conducted from the perspective of different stakeholders
