Livestock slurry storages are sources of methane (CH₄), nitrous oxide (NO₂), and ammonia (NH₃) emissions. Total solids (TS) content is an indicator of substrate availability for CH₄ and N₂O production and NH₃ emissions and is related to crust formation, which can affect these gas emissions. The effect of TS on these emissions from pilot-scale slurry storages was quantified from 20 May through 16 Nov. 2010 in Nova Scotia, Canada. Emissions from six dairy slurries with TS ranging from 0.3 to 9.5… CONTINUE READING
