New circular barn system for livestock reduces nitrogen emissions by more than 70%
Lely Sphere officially recognised (RAV)
Nitrogen emissions from livestock can be significantly reduced by using the Lely Sphere circular barn system. From October 1, the Lely Sphere barn system has been officially recognised and added to the Dutch RAV-list (The Netherlands Livestock Farming Ammonia Regulation) – a requirement to obtain a permit in accordance with the Low-Emission Housing Decree. The provisional emission factor for the Lely Sphere is 3.6kg NH3 per animal space per year, reducing emissions by more than 70% compared to barns with traditional slatted floors, which emit 13kg NH3 per animal space per year. Thanks to this reduction, the Lely Sphere offers a key solution to the sector’s nitrogen problem.
