UNC-Chapel Hill Scientist Will Look for Management Practices that Promote Conversion of Nitrogen Compounds in Animal Waste to Benign Nitrogen Gas

Record #:
As the swine industry continues to expand in North Carolina, questions have arisen about the ability of current animal waste management practices to protect surface waters from pollution by nitrogen from increasing volumes of swine waste. Dr. Stephen Whalen of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is conducting research aimed at identifying best management practices that will promote the conversion of complex nitrogen compounds in swine waste to benign dinitrogen gas.
