    In order to better understand and try to mitigate gaseous emissions from barns, our objective was to study the ammonia mass transport at slurry pit level. To this end, a suitable test facility was built. The stability of the ammonia emissions therein was presented, as well as the effect of different airflow directions and airflow rates. As more air entered the experimental slurry pit, higher emissions were found.
