The Danish Environmental Protection Agency invites you to a seminar on slurry acidification as an ammonia reducing technology.


Slurry acidification is an efficient technology for reducing ammonia emission. In Denmark, 20 % of all slurry is acidified prior to land application.

The technology is fully implemented in the Danish environmental legislation and is also admitted as a BAT technology for reducing ammonia emissions in the final draft of the BREF for the Intensive Rearing of Poultry and Pigs.


Maybe your country could benefit from slurry acidification? The Danish EPA invites you to an international seminar on Sep. 28th-29th 2016. At this event, you will get the chance to learn from researchers,legislators, technology manufacturers and farmer's organizations that have more than ten years of experience in using slurry acidification.
