The energy generated when fuel is burned is then used in the operation of a variety of equipment....
Air pollution from agriculture: EU exceeds international emission limit in 2014
Ammonia emissions in Europe have fallen since 1990, but by not as much as emissions of other air pollutants tracked under an internationally agreed United Nations convention.
