Solutions for GHGs emissions mitigation for the mixed farming systems across different European climate

Summary

The Solution4Farming (S4F) project aims to provide solutions for GHGs emissions mitigation for the mixed farming systems across a different European climate while increasing circularity.

To reach this aim the Project will address objectives to: (i) systemic identify synergy and complementarity with other sectors for mixed crop-livestock production; (ii) identify the most suitable solutions for each climate area to increase circularity in mixed farm; (iii) develop ICT tools to mitigate GHG emissions, (iv) test and validate the project solutions, (v) assess the effectiveness of the project solutions based on an LCA approach and (vi) provide dissemination, communication channels and results exploitation.

The project solutions will be demonstrated in three pilots. Pilot #1 explore the management options to mitigate GHG emissions in a mixed crop-livestock production, Pilot#2 evaluate regional synergies between livestock and crop production for enhancing agro-systems circularity in South-Eastern Spain, while Pilot#3 test new solutions to increase circularity and mitigate GHG emissions. The solutions will be tested in a pilot plant in Poland.

The S4F project expected results are (i) develop new technologies to increase circularity and reduce GHG emissions: new liquid and solid fertilizers, new adsorbents for use in ammonium nitrogen removal; (ii) create a Decision Support System for management of the mixed crop-livestock farm activities to mitigate GHG emissions; (iii) elaborate management options to enhance agro-systems circularity based on the regional synergies between livestock and crop production and (iv) create new controlled growth module to be used for the cultivation tests related to high-value crops.
