    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The environmental impact from livestock production is one of the main problems of this sector. Local and international regulations have been defined to reduce the environmental load of livestock farms. There are several techniques available aimed to the abatement of airborne emissions in farms. Among these techniques end-of-the-pipe approaches, such as air scrubbers, have turned into off-the-shelf techniques in Northern European countries such as The Netherlands. From the model calculations it follows that both balance methods are accurate, i.e. the systematic errors are very small. However, the air-based balance yields a considerably higher precision (i.e. the random error is small) than the combined balance. This difference in precision level depends on the removal efficiency and the applied ammonia measurement method
