2 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 2 Ispra, June 2005 Acknowledgement: This presentation is based on a paper Ammonia emissions in Poland: Inventory, projections, uncertainities by T. Kuczynski, U. Dämmgen, Z. Klimont, K. Kreis-Tomczak, A. Myczko and O. Slobodzian-Ksenicz, Emissions from European Agriculture, Wageningen Academic Publishers, The Netherlands, 2005.

3 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 3 Ispra, June 2005 Methodologies used for estimating GHG emissions Methodologies used in Poland are: –Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National GHG Inventories –Atmospheric Emission Inventory Guidebook, 2003 –Worksheets for the construction of emission inventories, that is a result of project GAS-EM - GASeous EMissions from Agriculture, elaborated by: Ulrich Dämmgen, Manfred Lüttich, Helmut Döhler, Brigitte Eurich Menden, Bernhard Osterburg.

4 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 4 Ispra, June 2005 Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National GHG Inventories was recommended by Ministry of Environment for assessing emissions from all economic sectors: –Energy (fuel combustions) –Industry (metallurgy, minerals incl. cement and lime production, chemicals incl. fertilizers) –Agriculture incl. animals, crops, soils, land use, forestry IBMER prepared two reports: –Detailed Investigations of Methane and Dinitrogen Oxide Emissions from Enteric Fermentation and from Animal Excreta. –Strategies of Reduction of Dinitrogen Oxide Emissions from Agriculture until 2020.

5 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 5 Ispra, June 2005 MS Excel worksheets for the construction of emission inventories developed by U. Dämmgen et al. were used for the calculation of ammonia emission using the simpler and detailed methodologies. The detailed methodologies often require specific data which have not been available for agricultural production in Poland. Ammonia calculations concern all groups of animals which are bred in Poland. The numbers of animals and other data are taken from the Statistical Yearbook of the Republic of Poland.

19 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 19 Ispra, June 2005 Uncertainties in emission projections The uncertainties are related with the lack detailed knowledge on: –Animal numbers in each species and age; –Differentiated structure of farming; –Data of housing, manure storage and spreading system; –Data on production efficiency; –Data on animal feeding; –Effect of all the factors mentioned above on NH 3 emission; –Technical and economical availability of measures against NH 3 emissions from housing, manure storage and spreading; –Frequent changes in Polish environmental law related to the ammonia emission in agricultural production activities.

22 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 22 Ispra, June 2005 Polish authorities launched a number of legal measures in order to prevent the environment from deteriorating effects of agricultural production: –Obligatory to draw up an environmental impact report for investments with breeding animals exceeding 240 LU and and in some cases 50 LU; –New regulations regarding minimum capacities of manure (both solid and slurry) storages – six months; Nitrogen fertilizers should not be applied in hot weather; Manure application is to be planned according to a detailed nutrient balance; Application yearly limit is set at the level of 170 kg N per ha; All organic and mineral fertilizers must be incorporated not later than 24 hours after application. Introduction of abatement measures

23 Inventory of GHG and NH 3 emissions from agriculture in Poland 23 Ispra, June 2005 New regulations on particular conditions of financial support by EU subsidy for modernisation of medium size farms include: –Demands for solid and slurry manure pit (6 months for Area Under Particular Protection, and 4 months for non-AUPP; –Algorithm and coefficients for calculating content of nitrogen in excreta from different animals and rearing systems. Existing Law of Environment Protection is enriched with a new chapter devoted to the integrated allowance for introducing gases and dusts to the atmosphere that refers to the BAT. Introduction of abatement measures - continued
