Cooling pig slurry to reduce gaseous emissions guide

This report introduces the use of slurry cooling and associated heat recovery in the reduction of ammonia emissions from stored pig slurry.

As regulation has evolved to reduce risks to the environment and human and animal health, the pressures on the pig industry to reduce emissions of ammonia and odour from slurry have increased. In this guide, you will find:

  • Background to slurry cooling
  • Heat pump technology
  • Slurry cooling sytem
  • Heat recovery and use
  • Cooling and heating benefits
  • Suppliers and Installers of Ground Source Heat Pumps
