During the storage of manure, microbiological processes take place in which, among other things, methane and nitrous oxide gas are formed. In particular, the microbiological process(es) that play a role in the formation of nitrous oxide have not yet been fully investigated. In my PhD research I try to understand these processes and test possible mitigation strategies to prevent the emission during storage.

I also work in the Emission and Manure Valorisation department on, among other things:

Air scrubber systems in livestock farming;

Valorisation of manure(products);

Methane oxidation techniques for in livestock farming.
