International conference on Zero Greenhouse Gas Emission in High Productive Agriculture

Aarhus University is organising the international conference on 'Zero Greenhouse Emission in High Productive Agriculture - ZEA' 22 - 24 February 2022. The conference is hosted and financially supported by NovoNordic Foundation and the venue is Tuborg Havnevej 19, DK-2600 Hellerup.

Greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture originate from livestock, manure, soils, land use and fossil fuels. Society is increasingly successful in reducing emissions from non-agricultural sectors, and within a few years, agriculture will be the sector with the largest greenhouse gas emissions, unless new production systems and technologies are introduced.

This conference will give experienced and young scientists a forum to present novel technologies and management practices with a Zero Greenhouse Gas Emission in High Productive Agriculture (ZEA) potential to reduce greenhouse gas emission, to discuss their work with fellow scientists and present this in the context of the overall policy targets.

The outcome will be improved understanding among scientists and end-users about how novel technologies and management of agricultural systems will affect emissions at farm and landscape scales. The overarching aim is to develop a roadmap leading to Zero Greenhouse Gas Emission Agriculture (ZEA).
