Embedding soil carbon sequestration in greenhouse gas calculations of ruminant systems and possibilities to offset enteric methane emissions

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

This study proposes a new approach to include soil C-seq in GHG accounting of ruminant systems, for situations where soil C-seq can be considered a finite process, and the differences in the behaviors between CO2 and CH4, based on a simple climate model. By equating the climate benefits of soil C-seq and a continuous flow of enteric CH4 emissions related to the Dutch dairy sector, we illustrate the method and how it can be used to assess the potential of soil C-seq in GHG mitigation in ruminant systems
