This review evaluates the effects of silage characteristics on enteric methane (CH4) emission from ruminants by performing a meta-analysis. A total of 17 studies were selected from the literature, and the relationship between CH4 yield (g/kg dry matter [DM] intake) and silage characteristics was...

Green roofs provide multiple environmental benefits. These include storm-water retention, water purification, insulation of the building, air quality and carbon sequestration and biodiversity enhancement. Green roofs can be classified as sustainable extensive green roofs (no additional fertilizer,...

Carbon pricing, which includes carbon tax, emission trading systems and carbon offset mechanisms, is the main economic instrument to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions responsible for global climate change. The academic literature on carbon pricing is rich due to hundreds of studies carried...

Greenhouse gases (GHG: carbon dioxide, CO2; methane, CH4; and nitrous oxide, N2O) are produced as part of the carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycle on farms. Livestock production, N fertilizer use and rice cultivation are the main farm activities producing CH4 and N2O, while CO2 emissions are due to...

Nitrous oxide is an important greenhouse gas with a global warming potential of 298 times that of carbon dioxide. It is also responsible for the destruction of stratospheric ozone. Concentrations of nitrous oxide have shown continuous growth in the atmosphere over the past century, and nitrogen (N) ...
