Baltic Slurry Acidification aimed to reduce nitrogen loss from livestock production by promoting the implementation of slurry acidification techniques throughout the Baltic Sea Region. Core activities focused on establishing pilot SAT installations and field trials in countries around the Baltic Sea. Pilot installations and field trials were used to produce knowledge, which was disseminated to target groups via field walks and demonstrations. Providing local experiences to helped build end user confidence in these technologies. The project further clarified technological aspects and potential risks of acidification, analysed the environmental and economic implications, conducted market analysis and suggested policy recommendations that could help the dissemination of SAT technology in the Baltic Sea region. Communication and dissemination of results and findings was done at all stages of the project via all work packages.
