AERU AGRICULTURE & ENVIRONMENT RESEARCH UNIT
 

Review of Livestock Feed Additives that have Direct Beneficial Effects on the Environment

In this project (to be completed in Spring 2013), funded by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), AERU will undertake a thorough, critical and systematic review of existing evidence of the environmental benefits associated with feed additives. This will include 'grey' literature and unpublished reports as well as journal publications and project reports. The analysis will compare the study methodology against a set of pre-determined criteria and will produce an inventory of current feed additives together with relevant data (quantitative and qualitative) on efficacy, mode of action, usage and regulatory status as well as physico-chemical and toxicological data. Data will be accessible for both individual studies and on the basis of accumulated evidence, and will be used to support the European regulatory process.
