Ammonia Emission from Mineral Fertilizers and Fertilized Crops
Abstract A thorough understanding of the physical and chemical processes involved in NH 3 emission from inorganic N fertilizers and fertilized crops is required if reliable and operational NH 3… Expand
Manure management: implications for greenhouse gas emissions
Abstract Slurry, farmyard manure and poultry manure are an inevitable consequence of livestock products generated from housed animals. These manures are recycled back to land for plants to use the… Expand
Solid—liquid separation of animal slurry in theory and practice. A review
Animal slurry contains plant nutrients that are essential for crop production. However, intensive livestock production may lead to a surplus of plant nutrients on farms and, as a consequence,… Expand

We examined the influence of fibrous fractions of biomass on biochemical methane potential (BMP) with the objective of developing an economical and easy-to-use statistical model to predict BMP, and… Expand
Solid-liquid separation of livestock slurry: efficiency and cost.
Abstract Environmental problems may arise on specialized livestock farms, which produce a surplus of nutrients in relation to crop requirements. Separation of this slurry into a liquid fraction and a… Expand
Separation efficiency and particle size distribution in relation to manure type and storage conditions.
Mechanical separation of liquid animal manure can be an effective technique for production of a liquid and a nutrient-rich solid fraction. The efficiency of separators depends on the physical and… Expand
Greenhouse Gas Emission from Stored Livestock Slurry
A review of the biogas industry in China
This article presents an overview of the development and future perspectives of the Chinese biogas industry. The development of the industry has the potential to improve the rural environment and… Expand
Nitrogen and organic matter losses during storage of cattle and pig manure
Solid pig manure (240 g kg 1 DM) and solid cattle manure (150-180 g kg 1 DM) were stored in an open storage facility during spring-summer and autumn conditions for periods of 9-14 weeks during 1994… Expand
