Covering slurry endstorage silos

In its agricultural policy AP22+, the Federal Council states that further reductions in greenhouse gas and odor emissions from slurry and manure are necessary.

In addition to the Environmental Protection Act (EPA), the following two measures, which are contained in the Air Pollution Control Ordinance (OAPC), will apply – across Switzerland – from January 1st 2022:

• Cover new and existing slurry endstorage permanently and,
• where topographically possible, use trailing drag hose distributors (LU & SG; other cantons from 2024)
