Select the tool you wish to use:
ALFAM2 - interctive model for estimating ammonia volatilisation during field spreading of manure.
The tool calculates the loss of nitrogen via evaporation of ammonia in connection to field spreading of slurry/liquid manure. The user can adjust decisive
parametres, such as weather conditions, dose and quality of the slurry, and the type of the used field spreading technique.
Technologies for reducing the climate impact and environmental load of farming are on this web
site defined as those primarily having relation to agriculture and livestock production, for instance related to EUs
Nitrates Directive (91/676/EC),
Industrial Emissions Directive (2010/75/EC) and
Emissions Ceilings (NEC) Directive (2016/2284/EU). The technologies includes as well some
Best Available Techniques, as defined in the
Reference Document on Intensive Rearing of Poultry and Pigs and its related
Implementing Decision (EU/2017/302).
A major issue in the mentioned EU legislation, which is transposed into national legislation in
EU Member States, is the definition of technologies, techniques and practices to be used in
agriculture and livestock production in order to prevent or reduce the loss of plant nutriets
to the environment, here under leaching, seepage, emissions and other ways of losses.

This Technology ATLAS is interactive: You can find data, information, illustrations, graphics and tables
about the individual technologies, you can join them in combined technologies and see their combined
costs and effects, and you can even send pre-defined amounts and types of livestock manure mixtures
through the technology processes, and see qualities and amounts of end and by-products, as well as
emissions and environmental impacts.
