METHANE EMISSIONS FROM CATTLE AND PIG FARMS COMPARISON OF MEASURED EMISSION RATES AND NATIONAL REPORTING SCHEMES

Publisher

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Dairy and meat production result in anthropogenic methane emissions to the atmosphere contributing to climate change. Methane emissions from livestock farms have to be reported in national greenhouse gas inventories. Currently, methane emissions from a single farm are evaluated following a relative simple model provided by national reporting schemes. However, DTU Environment has quantified methane emissions from a number of pig and cattle farms using a tracer gas method. The aim of this project is to investigate the difference between annual methane emission estimations using current national reporting schemes and direct methane emission quantifications.
