pig farms produce anthropogenic methane emissions, which contribute to
global warming. Part of these emissions comes from the temporary storage of the
produced manure. Currently, emissions of methane from manure tanks are unknown
and emission rates are estimated based on lab tests.
of this project is to quantify methane emission rates from manure tanks using a
stationary tracer gas dispersion method, which provides integrated emissions
from manure storage units. Additionally the project aims to investigate the
relationship between measured methane emission rates and manure conditions,
e.g. treatment, temperature, pH.
