Allocated to research program
The M4Models project will investigate the reduction potential for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from livestock using a new methodology to determine methane (CH4) emissions from liquid manure storage combined with a model to describe carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) fluxes at farm level. This new methodology is transparent and provides verifiable estimates of greenhouse gas reduction. While the focus is on existing emission abatement technologies (in particular feeding and anaerobic digestion), the proposed methodology - after validation in this project - can be used to quantify the impact of abatement measures, and also in national emission inventories. M4Models works towards the following objectives: - Quantification of CH4 emissions and N-availability of liquid manure including reduction measures; - Estimates of greenhouse gas reduction at the operational level through integration into operational models; - Improvement of CH4 emission estimates and greenhouse gas reduction potentials for national emission inventories.
