Separating manure: saving the climate

When excrement and urine from cows or pigs mix, a lot of methane gas and ammonia is produced. But if the urine and manure are separated, greenhouse gas emissions and ammonia formation can be reduced by up to 75%. Researchers at Wageningen University & Research are working together with farmers to separately collect and store these products. Separately spreading manure and urine across the land is also beneficial for the soil as well as farmland birds.
