Emissions also have a negative impact on the environment. That is why international environmental covenants set ceilings for a maximum level of emissions that may be released into the atmosphere. These ceilings will eventually influence the future and development of dairy farms worldwide. Therefore, minimising ammonia emissions is becoming increasingly important for the future of dairy farming.
The emission of ammonia naturally occurs quickly after the cow urinates. Enzymes, present in the faeces, increase that natural process. Fortunately, this loss can be converted into value by controlling the environment where the losses occur. Lely Sphere captures the ammonia emissions and converts them into circular fertilisers.
