Abstract

Poultry farmers in the European Union and especially in Holland have been dealing with environmental legislation for some years already. The most important regulations are the directives 2001/81/EC; National Emission Ceilings for certain pollutants and 96/61/EC; Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control, and the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). These directives state that the emission of ammonia from poultry houses must decrease and that each farm must have a permit. Poultry farmers in Holland must use a housing system with an ammonia emission that is not higher than given maximum levels.
