Seminar: Solving the ammonia emission problem in the EU
Date: Monday November 26 at 2 pm – 6 pm (registration from 1:30 pm)
Address: Copa-Cogeca Secretariat, Rue de Trèves 61, Brussels
With ammonia emissions on the rise and NEC targets lurking around the corner, measures to cut emissions are sorely needed. We therefore invite you to participate in a seminar about reducing ammonia emissions from agriculture through slurry acidification – a BAT approved method that benefits both the farmer and the environment. The method cuts emissions by 40 to 64 percent and increases the fertilizer value of slurry.
The agenda for the seminar includes:
- Presentation of slurry acidification techniques (SATs) and the science behind them (Erik Sindhöj, Research Institutes of Sweden)
- Policy frameworks (Henning Foged, Organe Institute)
- A user’s perspective on slurry acidification (Mathias Tillback, Br Göransson)
- 10 years of experience of SATs in Denmark (Sven Gjedde Sommer, Aarhus University)
- A governance perspective (François Wakenhut, European Commission DG Environment)
The event is organized by project partner Baltic Sea Action Group on behalf of Baltic Slurry Acidification, a flagship project under the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region Policy Area Bioeconomy.
Please register before the 22nd of November through the form below.

PS. Care for an introduction to air pollution from agriculture in anticipation of the seminar? Here’s an excellent video on the subject produced by the European Commission.
