  • Research indicates new tool for reducing ammonia emission

    USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation announce the completion of a funded research project at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga., in which the researchers found evidence of a new tool to reduce ammonia emission from broiler litter. The research project is part of the Association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. A ...

  • Greater efforts to reduce ammonia emissions needed to meet air pollution targets

    Levels of particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere are linked to ammonia emissions. However, reducing ammonia emissions only as far as targets set out by the Gothenburg Protocol will not necessarily ensure compliance with EU PM limits, according to a new study. Greater reductions in ammonia emissions would reduce the number of days when PM limit values are exceeded, the researchers found. In ...

  • A new global map of ammonia emissions

    For the first time, a global map of atmospheric ammonia emissions has been produced using satellite measurements. This opens up new ways to survey air quality and monitor the Earth's atmospheric chemistry from space. Modern agricultural practices, especially intensive farming methods and widespread fertiliser use, are mainly responsible for ammonia emissions, which have more than doubled since ...

  • New initiative will reduce air pollution from agriculture

    Ammonia emissions into the air is a major threat to human health, causing cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Atmospheric ammonia is also a significant source of acidification and excess nutrient loading, causing loss of biodiversity in many of the most vulnerable ecosystems. This calls for stronger action to reduce emissions. Ammonia or NH3 mainly comes from manure produced by ...

  • Air pollution from agriculture: ammonia exceeds emission limits in 2015

    Ammonia (NH3) emissions in Europe have fallen since 1990, but not as much as emissions of other air pollutants tracked under an internationally agreed United Nations Convention. According to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report published today, ammonia emissions increased in 2015 and several European Union Member States as well as the EU as a whole exceeded their respective NH3 emission ...

  • 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. According to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA), ammonia emissions increased in 2014, meaning several EU Member States as well as the EU now exceed their respective ammonia emission limits under the ...

    Presentation highlights ammonia analysis solutions at key environmental technology and regulation conference

    Servomex’s Global Business Development Manager, Dr Marshik, will discuss “NH3 analyzers and how they fare under ps-18 and pps-001”. This focuses on the role of our SERVOTOUGH Laser 3 Plus and adapted SERVOPRO NOx analyzers for the continuous emissions monitoring of ammonia, comparing direct and indirect measurement techniques. It will be the second presentation of the session, ...

  • Defra release UK emissions of air pollutants – 2009 results

    This National Statistics release covers 2009 results from the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (NAEI) for UK emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) and ammonia. These four pollutants are primarily responsible for acidification and eutrophication which can be damaging to ecosystems, and the formation of ground-level ozone which can be ...

  • Deadly effect of farming’s dirty needs

    Farming is a dirty business – so dirty now that, according to new research, air pollution from agriculture in the form of fine particles of lung-choking dust outweighs all other human sources of that kind of pollution. These particles are calculated to cause around 3.3 million deaths a year worldwide − ...

  • Eleven Member States exceed air emissions limits under LRTAP Convention

    Emissions of most air pollutants have fallen over the last two decades in Europe. But many Member States have exceeded internationally-agreed pollutant limits set to protect human health and the environment, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). Road transport, households, power plants, agricultural activities and certain industry sectors continue to emit ...

  • Company scrambled by egg-traordinary fine

    One of the largest egg producers in the UK has been ordered to pay £65,000, as well as costs of £9,500, for operating five sites across England without the required environmental permits. Lincolnshire company, L J Fairburn, ran the sites between 1 February 2007 to 17 February 2012 without authorisation. Skegness Magistrates’ Court heard that at one time, Back Lane Poultry ...

  • New maps give Europeans close-up picture of air pollution from diffuse sources

    New online maps published today by the European Commission and the European Environment Agency, in close cooperation with the Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) of the Joint Research Centre, allow citizens to pinpoint the main diffuse sources of air pollution, such as transport and aviation. The new set of 32 maps shows where certain pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and ...

  • Emissions of air pollutants down in EU-27

    The European Community's air pollutant emission inventory report released today by the European Environment Agency finds that in 2007, sulphur oxides (SOx) emissions were down by 72 % from 1990 levels. The downward emission trend of three main pollutants which cause ground-level ozone continued in 2007: carbon monoxide (CO) fell by 57 %, non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) were down ...

  • Bion Announces New U.S. Patent for Phosphorus Removal

    Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB/QX: BNET) announced today that it has been notified by the United States Patent and Trademark Office that the patent application entitled "Micro-Electron Acceptor Phosphorus Accumulating Organisms" has been granted.  The new patent provides enhanced protection for Bion's micro-aerobic digestion process's nutrient uptake capabilities with respect ...

  • Bion Announces Submittal of Data to Support Issuance of Permanent Water Quality Management Permit at Kreider Farms

  • Carbon capture and storage could also impact air pollution

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) involves capturing carbon dioxide released by power stations and other industrial sources, and burying it deep underground. But in addition to keeping an important greenhouse gas (GHG) out of the atmosphere, this technology will lead to benefits and trade-offs for air pollution. A new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) describes the effects that CCS ...
