Ammonia and nitrogen
In recent years, Connecting Agri & Food has invested heavily in building expertise to reliably and accurately map environmental quality. As announced in the final report of the Remkes Commission’s Advisory Committee on Nitrogen Problems, livestock farms must gain insight into ammonia emissions around the farm. The goal is to come up with numerical evidence and based on measurements in and around the company. It also recommends an air quality monitoring network complementary to measurement systems with sensors in the stables. These include ammonia and integrally nitrate, phosphate, particulate matter, odor and methane.
Connecting Agri & Food is helping to evaluate the most appropriate sensors, for measuring particulate matter and key odor components. We do this for a variety of clients. We are also involved in pilots, commissioned by municipalities and provinces, in which farmers and citizens discuss measurement results together.
