Federal Government is Studying Air Emmissions from Livestock - AGAIN
by Gary Baise
The National Air Emissions Monitoring Study (NAEMS) is back!
Last week, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) - after 15 years – suggested new draft air emission models for swine operations.
You may remember that in 2005 there was an agreement between the animal production industry and EPA. This was an effort to calculate the emissions of ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, particulate matter, and volatile organic compounds emitted from animal feeding operations producing swine, broiler chickens, egg-laying operations, and dairies.
