The CFPAN tool and database FeedPrint calculates the carbon footprint of feed raw materials during their complete life cycle. This ranges from crop production, via processing of crop and animal products, compound feed production to utilization by the animal, including transport and storage between all steps of the production chain.
The CFPAN tool has been developed to gain insight in greenhouse gas emissions during the production and utilization chain of feed an to identify mitigation options.
The CFPAN calculation tool and database FeedPrint is developed and owned by Wageningen UR Livestock Research and Blonk Milieu Advies. The project is financed by the Product Boards Animal Feed, Arable Products, Livestock and Meat, Poultry and Eggs, Margarine Fats and Oils and the Dutch Dairy Board an the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation.
