new book chapter. You can find “The Sustainability Challenge of Dairy Livestock
Systems” inside the book Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly Dairy
Farms, edited by Santiago García-Yuste, it is part of the SpringerBriefs in
Applied Sciences and Technology book series.
The book, Sustainable
and Environmentally Friendly Dairy Farms, presents an innovative
environmental proposal. While chiefly focusing on dairy farms, the
environmental solution it describes applies to the entire livestock sector. This
book is divided into five chapters elaborated by eight authors. The first
chapter -written by the GEAR members listed above – describes the current situation of the global dairy livestock
industry under the influence and challenge of the commitments of the so-called Paris
Agreement and addresses the carbon footprint of dairy farms. Firstly, the key points of the Agreement affecting the livestock and
dairy systems are discussed within the framework of the Sustainable Development
Goals. Next, a detailed analysis of the evolution of the activity and the
greenhouse gas emissions of the industry is presented. Finally, a summary of
current environmental solutions and bioeconomy alternatives will contribute to
enriching the discussion.
contribution is part of the collaboration of the GEAR group in a UCLM’s multidisciplinary
research group. Together with chemists and engineers, who are working on
techniques for the capture and use of CO2.
