What?

This 5th edition of the EMILI Conference offers an opportunity to present and discuss the latest scientific advances from research on gas and dust emissions in animal agriculture. These will provide the information that industry and governments need in order to achieve cost-effective gas and dust mitigation outcomes.

How?

During the last decades, important advances have been achieved regarding the understanding of emissions processes, measurement strategies, modelling and mitigation strategies. However, a higher level of ambition is required to ensure the sustainability of livestock production. Scientific knowledge is necessary to measure the emissions, to improve national inventories of gas emissions and to understand the processes which make it possible to reduce the emissions while adapting to the diversity of the animal farming systems and the practices of the farmers.

Why?

Livestock production is essential to ensure food security and allows the social and economic development of rural areas. However, animal production involves emitting ammonia, greenhouse gases, particulate matter and other pollutants to the atmosphere, causing detrimental effects on the environment and impairing animal and human health. Therefore, it is urgent that these emissions are reduced globally.
