Methane and Ammonia Air Pollution

During a recent meeting at the European Parliament on revision of the National Emissions Ceilings Directive, MEPs asked what is the relationship between mitigation of methane and ammonia emissions.  The attached Policy Brief on Methane and Ammonia Air Pollution has been prepared by the Task Force in response. Overall, measures to reduce these gases go hand-in-hand through links to sector activity. While some measures offer synergistic benefits, there is an ongoing need to optimize practices in order to minimize trade-offs between the two gases. These interactions highlight the opportunity to further develop synergies when including both ammonia and methane the revised NECD.
