Greenhouse gas emissions from animal manure represent about 2% of global emissions levels. Breakdown of manure applied to soils and pasture results in significant emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas N2O, while manure management in low oxygen environments often found in open lagoons results in significant methane emissions globally. Technology opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from manure include the development of advanced dietary and soil additives to reduce N2O production, precision agriculture technologies for improved manure application as fertilizer, the development of advanced anaerobic digester technologies to reduce methane emissions, and others – in addition to technology solutions that reduce demand for livestock-based food products.
