TAIEX EIR Multi-country Workshop on Ammonia reducing technology and measures: how to include the reduction effect in the national emission inventory and projections

Multistakeholder-møde med andre EU lande, der ønsker at høre mere om de danske erfaringer med ammoniakopgørelser.

This Workshop is organised in the framework of TAIEX-EIR Peer 2 Peer, a programme launched European Commission as a practical tool that facilitates peer-to-peer learning between environmental authorities of EU Member States. A lot of effort is being done to improve national emission inventories, and one of the best ways to do this is by knowledge sharing between experts to draw on the experiences from other countries.

 


Day 1: Tuesday 16 November 2021
Chair: Mr Nick Hutchings, Senior Researcher. Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University
Venue: online

Time of the agenda: (CET)

09:45Registration of participants, solving technical issues
10:00Welcome address: introduction

Speaker: Mr Ole-Kenneth Nielsen, Department of Environmental Science, Aarhus University

10:15Welcome address: The frame of the workshop

–        Ammonia emission inventory and projection in perspective

Speakers:

Ms Heidi Ravnborg, Technical Advisor, The Danish Ministry of Environment

Ms Susanne Lindahl, Policy Officer, DG Environment, European Commission

10:30Topic: Ammonia reducing technologies or measures reported in the inventory

–        To which extend are the ammonia reducing technologies or measures included in the member states reporting of the national emission inventory and projections?

Speaker: Ms Rikke Albrektsen and Ms Mette Hjorth Mikkelsen, Department of Environmental Science, Aarhus University

10:50Topic: Overview of ammonia reducing technologies and measures

–        An overview of ammonia reducing technologies and measures regarding livestock housing, storage and manure application

Speaker: Mr Anders Peter S. Adamsen, Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, Aarhus University

11:20Topic: Recommendations in the EMEP/EEA Guidance regarding ammonia reducing technology og measures

–        What is included in the EMEP/EEA Guidance regarding calculation of ammonia reduction caused by the use of ammonia reducing technologies or other ammonia reducing measures?

Speaker: Ms Barbara Amon and Mr Nick Hutchings, co-chairs for the Agricultural Panel of the Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections (Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering Bioeconomy, Germany. Department of Agroecology, Aarhus University)

11:40Topic: Open discussions of Part I

What is the main challenges by including ammonia reducing technology/measures in the emission inventory?

Speaker: All participants

12:15Lunch break
13:15Topic: EMEP/EEA Manure management N-flow tool

–        In relation to the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2019, a Manure management N-flow tool in Excel format has been provided, which can be used for a Tier2 based calculation. How can the ammonia reducing technology and measures be handled in the N-flow tool?

Speaker: Mr Richard German. Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections – Agriculture ad hoc group

13:35Topic: AgrEE-tool for air pollutant inventories from agricultural activities

–        An AgrEE model has been recently developed by the JRC, which is a tool to handle both the air pollutants and the greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural sector.  How can ammonia reducing technology and measures be handled in the AgrEE tool?

Speaker: Ms Manjola Banja, Joint Research Centre, European Commission

14:00Topic: Other sources of general information on reduction potentials for ammonia reducing technologies and measures.

–        From an emission compilers point of view, where to find information on ammonia reducing technologies and measures?

Speaker: Mr Wilfried Winiwarter, UNECE Taskforce on Reactive Nitrogen. IIASA (The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis)

14:20Coffee break
14.30Topic: Open discussions of Part II

–         To which extend can the N-flow models take into account ammonia technologies/measures?

–        Discussion of needs and wishes for knowledge in relation to the further work with improvements of national emission inventory and projection.

Speaker: All participants

15:00Topic: Lesson to learn

–        What is the most important knowledge sharing from this workshop?

–        Discussions of needs for further improvements of guidance e.g. the EMEP/EEA Guidebook.

Speaker: All participants

15:15End of the workshop
