Synthesis, integrated assessments and stakeholders dialogues

The aim of this work package is to:  

  • To synthesize the new technology and knowledge developed in other work packages and elsewhere into improved manure management systems
  • To conduct integrated assessments of the whole manure management chains
  • To analyze the views of stakeholders (farmers, industry, consumers, green movements) on these improved manure management systems, their products and services

Background

The success of new technology and manure management systems in practice depends on the economic viability, environmental soundness and the social acceptability of these techno­logies and systems (Burton and Turner, 2003). It is important that new technology and techni­ques contribute to the improvement of the overall performances of the manure management chain, and should not shift the problems to other compartments. 

The new technology and manure management systems should contribute to the economic competitiveness of the agricultural sector, to improved energy and nutrient recove­ry and decreased emissions of NH3 and GHG to air and nutrient discharge to water recipients. At the same time, the new technology and manure management systems must be acceptable both by the farmers implementing the technologies (separation, filtration, AD, gasification), by the farmers utilizing the product (biofertilizers, bioenergy) and not least the public who will be neighbours or beneficiaries of the services provided.
