Nitrogen discharge – this can be problematic for greenhouse horticultural businesses

A large part of the livestock sector in The Netherlands cannot expand because of their nitrogen emission. Expanding of the livestock sector is not possible based on the “Wet natuurbescherming” (Nature Protection Law) in connection with Nature 2000 areas. Also the greenhouse horticultural sector has to deal with this legislation.

The greenhouse horticultural businesses which discharge more nitrogen after 31 December 2014, will possibly need a permit Nature Protection Law. For example, because of expansion of a number of installations or acreage.

AAB can provide sound advice to its Dutch customers in order to meet these emissions requirements. If you need more information you can contact Henk van Koppen, telephone number + 31 174 637 637. Email:
