According to the Gothenburg Protocol to abate acidification, eutrophication and ground-level ozone ammonia emissions need to be reduced by 40% in manure storage systems. An abatement of ammonia emissions, suggested in this paper, is based on application of the biotechnological agent Amalgerol. Ammonia emissions from farmyard manure storage piles from broiler and pig breeding were compared in order to verify the reducing potential of the applied biotechnological agent. The experiments carried out under operating conditions proved a positive influence of biotechnological agents on ammonia emissions reduction – decrease in the emissions from the broiler storage pile represented 41.16% and from the pig storage pile 35.85%, both in comparison with reference storage piles.Keywords:
