Ammonia in livestock
With the current nitrogen emission problems, the livestock farmer can monitor himself how much ammonia emission actually takes place on his own farm. The farmer can then take appropriate measures in his process to meet the emission requirements.
Why ammonia sensors in the stable:
-Livestock farming goes from means requirements to goal prescription: Sensors for ammonia together with ICT enables the farmer to monitor and take well-founded management measures.
-The farmer can permanently monitor the ammonia emissions and adjust the processes (housing method, feed strategy, manure processing, climate control, downstream technologies, etc.) based on the measured concentrations.
-The ammonia sensor can be used universally and can be linked to climate controls and ammonia reducing systems. The ammonia sensor can thus function as a fully automatic and permanent control parameter within these systems.
-Example of control: Ammonia controlled manure scraper, Automatic Controlled Natural Ventilation (ACNV) for dairy farming or climate control by means of ammonia-controlled ventilation for pig farming and calf farming, efficiency monitoring of air washers.
-The effects of emission reduction in the stables improves welfare and animal health.
-The effects of emission reduction in the stable increase the value (economic aspect), which results in higher yields.
-Insight into local ammonia emissions from the stable (source) offers tools for reducing emissions with more factors than just spreading technology, soil and crop type.
