Characterization of particulate and gaseous pollutants from a French dairy and sheep farm

Abstract : Agricultural activities highly contribute to atmospheric pollution, but the diversity and the magnitude of their emissions are still subject to large uncertainties. A field measurement campaign was conducted to characterize gaseous and particulate emissions from an experimental farm in France containing a sheep pen and a dairy stable. During the campaign, more than four hundred volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were characterized using an original combination of online and off-line measurements. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and ammonia (NH3) were the most concentrated compounds inside the buildings, followed by methanol, acetic acid and acetaldehyde. A CO2 mass balance model was used to estimate NH3 and VOC emission rates. To our knowledge, this study constitutes the first evaluation of emission rates for most of the identified VOCs. The measurements show that the dairy stable emitted more VOCs than the sheep pen. Despite strong VOC and NH3 emissions, the chemical composition of particles indicates that gaseous farm emissions do not affect the loading of fine particles inside the farm and is mainly explained by the low residence time inside the buildings. The experimental dataset obtained in this work will help to improve emissions inventories for agricultural activities.
