WP 6.1: Field application and gas emissions of slurry treated by additives and mechanical separation 

Fellow (ESR): Maxwell Owusu-Twum, UTAD

Prior to his graduate studies, Maxwell obtained a BSc in Environmental Science from the university of Cape Coast, Ghana. His quest for knowledge inspired him to further his Education in Europe, where he obtained an MSc in Agricultural Science (specializing in plants and environment) and an MSc in Environmental Science (soil, water and biodiversity) from the University of Copenhagen; Denmark and the University of Hohenheim; Germany respectively.  

His first work experience was as an environmental officer with the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) in Ghana; West Africa.  He also worked with Eurofins Agroscience services GmbH, Niefern, as a field research assistant whiles studying in Germany and as student research assistant with the then Institute of forestry and landscape, University of Copenhagen.

 His PhD focuses on the environmental and agronomic impact of slurry treatments at different stages of management. He will investigate the effect of physical, chemical and biological treatment of slurry on ammonia and greenhouse gas emissions from excretion, storage and after field application, under a double forage cropping system. The economic value of the above treatment approaches will also be evaluated. The objectives of his research will be achieved using laboratory and field experiments.

Supervisors: Dr Henrique Trinidad (UTAD); Dr Joao Coutinho (UTAD) and Dr David Fangueiro (ISA)
