Baltic Slurry Acidification

Promoting the implementation of slurry acidification techniques throughout the Baltic Sea Region.

Baltic Slurry Acidification aims to promote the implementation of slurry acidification techniques throughout the Baltic Sea Region. Slurry acidification techniques (SATs) will reduce the ammonia losses from livestock manure and thus reduce airborne eutrophication of the Baltic Sea. The usage of SATs will provide clear environmental benefit for the region. The use of SATs benefits also farmers by increasing the nitrogen use efficiency of their manure fertilizers and thereby decreasing their dependency on mineral nitrogen.etusivu2
