WP 6: Policy Recommendations and Analyses of Markets and Legislation

WP 6 will do country specific analyses of related policies, legislation, framework conditions and market potentials and will thus clarify the potential for  use of Slurry Acidification Technologies (SATs) in the individual Baltic Sea Region (BSR) countries. Danish policies, legislation and support schemes will be a baseline for policies, legislation and support schemes in other project countries, and potential enablers and barriers for the disseminated use of SATs in the Baltic Sea Region countries will be identified. The activities will include investigation of possible work safety related provisions associated with SATs, and exchange of Danish ways to take necessary precautions. Market analyses will especially focus on the farming structure and practices that are favouring the use of SATs, such as slurry’s share of produced livestock manure.

The work from WP 2 (Technical Feasibility Studies), WP 3 (Pilot Installations and Demonstrations), WP 4 (Field Trials), and analyses from WP 5 (Environmental and Economic Implications) will support the studies in WP 6. On basis of that, policy recommendations will be formulated and they will provide the foundation for a qualified dialogue with target groups, including authorities, farmers organisations, research, farm advisory services, business and policy makers in the BSR countries concerning the potentials of SATs as  instruments for reach of national targets for air and water quality as well as for the economic development of the livestock production.

Roundtables geared towards the target groups will be aimed to stimulate cross-sector and policy oriented dialogue, and to rise the capacity to develop national legislation and support schemes for SATs. Dissemination and communication activities will also comprise articles for the project website and various media, newsletters and presentations at international conferences.

Specific objectives include activities like:

  • Country-wise policy recommendations and guidelines
  • Roundtable meetings
