  • M anagement of livestock wastes can affect greenhouse gas emissions through attenuating both methane and nitrous oxide emissions, as well as by displacing carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel use that can be avoided through biogas production and use. Methane is naturally produced from the anaerobic decomposition of livestock manure and is a potent greenhouse gas with 21 times the greenhouse warming potential of CO2, on a mass ratio basis (U.S. EPA 2007). Nitrous oxide is naturally produced… CONTINUE READING
