Emissions from European Agriculture
edited by Tadeusz Kuczynski

Emissions from European Agriculture discusses various aspects of agricultural emissions.


  • Details introductory, theoretical, and methodological issues
  • Gives the most recent data on national emissions, particularly these of nitrogen species in several European countries as well as projections of gaseous emissions for all Europe
  • Deals exclusively with ammonia in a comprehensive survey of its emission abatement potentials, techniques, the cost of appropriate actions and the difficulties in their practical implementation
