  • Title: Background Information | N-Print
    Descriptive info: Background Information.. The human creation of reactive nitrogen (all N species except N.. 2.. ) by food and energy production has profound beneficial and detrimental impacts on people and.. the enviro.. n.. ment (1).. Agricultural uses, including both food production and consumption, contribute the most reactive nitrogen to the environment.. The main beneficial impact of the agricultural use of reactive nitrogen is the food produced by nitrogen fertilizer and human-enhanced biological nitrogen fixation.. These two processes provide the N to sustai.. n about.. half of the world’s population (2).. The detrimental impacts result because a large fraction of the N used in food and biofuel production, and all of the N used in non-biofuel (i.. e.. non-agricultural) energy production, are lost to the environment.. Of the N used to produce food, about 80% is lost before consumption, and the remainder is lost after consumption as human waste.. O.. nc.. e.. los.. t t.. o.. the environment, this nitrogen moves through the Earth’s atmosphere, forests, grasslands and waters causing a cascade of enviro.. nmental changes that negatively impact bot.. h people and ecosystems.. These changes include smog, acid rain, forest dieback, coastal ‘dead zones’, biodiversity loss, stratospheric ozone depletion and an enhanced greenhouse effect (3).. The hum.. an influences on both the nitrogen and carbon cycles of the Earth are important to understand and to manage.. Over the past decade, great progress has been made in communicating to the public the role that their actions have on the carbon cycle and the environment.. For two reasons this is not the case with nitrogen.. First, there has been less scientific focus on nitrogen.. Second is the challenge in communicating to the public the complexities of nitrogen’s interactions with the environment.. One way to address the latter is through a nitrogen footprint model: N-Calculator.. The  ...   provides more information on nitrogen and projects related to nitrogen in the US..

    Descriptive info: Personal N Footprint Calculator.. Click the globe to calculate your personal nitrogen footprint.. Please note that, depending on your network connection speed, it could take a couple of minutes before the application is fully loaded.. The N-Calculator is a tool that allows individuals (you) to calculate their nitrogen footprint.. The tool in its current form can also be scaled for use by communities, organizations, or countries.. When using the N-Calculator, you are asked questions about resource consumption in the following areas:.. Food consumption.. Housing.. Transportation.. Goods and services.. The N-Calculator, which starts with the average per capita consumption of these four categories in a country, is then scaled to the individual based  ...   consumption of food typically makes up the largest proportion of a person’s nitrogen footprint.. In the United States, food production and consumption make up 80% of the average per capita N footprint.. Currently, there are N-Calculator tools available for the United States, the Netherlands, and Germany.. We are in the process of developing N-Calculators for other countries, including China, Tanzania, India, the UK, and Portugal.. More detail on the N-Calculator and its methodology can be found in the recently accepted N-Calculator paper, titled.. "A nitrogen footprint model to help consumers understand their role in nitrogen losses to the environment.. ".. This paper will be published in.. in January 2012.. to view this paper..

    Descriptive info: Contact:.. James N.. Galloway, Associate Dean for the Sciences, University of Virginia,.. jng@eservices.. virginia.. , 434-924-3437.. Allison Leach, Research Associate, University of Virginia,.. , (434) 924-1303.. New free, hands-on tool supports sustainable living choices.. Nitrogen footprint calculator enables individuals to chart and reduce their contribution to growing problem of nitrogen pollution.. CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA –.. People who want to eat healthy and live sustainably have a new way to measure their impact on the environment:.. a web-based too.. l that calculates an individual’s “nitrogen footprint.. ”.. The device was created by award-winning scientist James N.. Galloway, his research colleague Allison Leach at the University of Virginia, and colleagues from The Netherlands and the University of Maryland.. The calculator is a project of the International Nitrogen Initiative, a global network of scientists who share research and data on the nitrogen dilemma.. The project was launched Feb.. 19 at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington.. What’s the big deal about nitrogen? Though residents of the Chesapeake Bay and Gulf of Mexico are likely familiar with it, it’s unknown to most Americans outside the agricultural world.. For the last 30 years, Galloway and other leading scientists have been noting fish kills in coastal areas, threats to human health as a result of air and water pollution, and changes to global biodiversity and climate.. This tool is one of their attempts to win more understanding of nitrogen’s role in our lives.. “Nitrogen, as any farmer knows, is essential to plant life,” said James Galloway, the Associate Dean for the Sciences in the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia and the Sidman P.. Poole Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences.. “But the widespread use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizer to boost crop production has resulted in excess nitrogen coming off farms – essentially adding unwanted, unneeded fertilizer to our natural systems with disastrous results.. The combustion of fossil fuels adds even more nitrogen to our environment.. It’s a  ...   ” They are similar to other sustainable living choices: reduce airplane travel, choose renewable energy, and eat less meat, particularly beef.. Professors and lecturers are already using the tool in classrooms to teach students how one individual can alter --and help restore--a natural cycle like nitrogen.. “Solving the nitrogen dilemma is a major challenge of our time,” said lead researcher Allison Leach of the University of Virginia.. “By calculating our individual impact, and taking small steps to reduce it, we can all play a part – and send a strong message to our nation’s leaders that we want this issue taken seriously.. ”.. This new footprint calculator is the first in a series of research tools, known as.. N-Print.. , which Galloway and his team are developing to connect the production of nitrogen with the policies used to manage it.. The team is currently creating a similar calculator for farmers and other nitrogen users, as well as a tool for policymakers that will provide regional nitrogen emission ceilings, which will show how much nitrogen can be released in these regions without major negative environmental impact.. “There are readily available solutions to reducing nitrogen pollution,” Galloway said.. “By connecting consumers, producers and policymakers, we can solve it.. Chemical fertilizer use and combustion engines are the main sources of nitrogen pollution.. Scientists who are recording dramatic changes to ecosystems from the US to China say the disruption of the nitrogen cycle leads the list of.. global tipping points.. and have named it a top threat to global biodiversity.. It contributes to human health problems, water pollution, ozone layer depletion, smog, climate change, and coastal dead zones.. Nitrous oxide, created mostly from grain and meat production, is also a greenhouse gas 300 times more potent than carbon dioxide.. This project is supported by the Agouron Institute, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the University of Virginia, and the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands..

  • Title: Change Your N Footprint | N-Print
    Descriptive info: Now that you know what your nitrogen footprint is, what can you do to influence it?.. There are many things that you can do to reduce your nitrogen footprint, though some elements like electricity production are out of your control.. Food.. Alter your diet: try to choose foods produced on more sustainable farms.. Sustainable farms use practices that reduce their amount of nitrogen fertilizer runoff into the water and air.. If they raise livestock, they take care to manage their manure so it doesn’t pollute.. Adjust your food consumption to include only the recommended dietary protein needs.. A protein-heavy diet is nitrogen-intensive, since nitrogen is a critical component of protein production and is a component of protein itself.. The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) recommendation is 0.. 36 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day for adults (or 0.. 8 g protein per kg body weight).. See.. this document.. from the USDA or page 4 of.. from the Institute of Medicine for more information.. If you eat more than your recommended protein intake, try replacing some protein with other types of food like fruits, vegetables and grains.. Consider both vegetable and animal protein choices among your preferences.. A balanced diet includes protein from both plant and animal sources, and making sure you receive protein from both is good for both your health and for the environment.. If choosing to consume animal protein, consider a less N-intensive meat.. The production of different types of meat involves distinct processes that release different amounts of nitrogen to the environment.. For example, chicken production is less N-intensive than beef production.. This  ...   in the winter.. Choose more sustainable transportation methods like carpooling, public transit, bicycling, or walking.. Purchase a car that uses less gas, such as a hybrid vehicle.. Reduce your consumption of goods and services by limiting unnecessary purchases, reusing, and recycling.. It is important to note that doing many of these things even just one day a week can make a big difference over.. time.. Most of these lifestyle.. changes will reduce not only your nitrogen footprint, but also your carbon footprint and your ecological footprint.. These changes will generally lead you to live a more sustainable life.. What else can you do to reduce nitrogen pollution?.. We already know how to reduce our nitrogen footprint: support agricultural production that optimizes nitrogen fertilizer user, choose a diet with less animal protein, and minimize fuel-heavy forms of transportation like airplane travel.. These suggestions aren’t unique to reducing nitrogen pollution– many people trying to create more healthy communities are calling for these changes.. Yo.. u can go one step beyond your personal lifestyle choices and join others in calling for:.. More renewable electricity choices from your local utility, such as wind and solar power.. Increasing government support for sustainable farming practices.. For instance, there are current discussions in the US Congress about conservation measures within the national Farm Bill that encourage farmers to grow food more sustainably.. Let your local Representative know you support these measures!.. to find and contact your local Representative in the US.. Your individual efforts to reduce your nitrogen footprint and nitrogen pollution in general can have a big impact on nitrogen pollution and on the environment..

  • Title: N-PRINT: Links to N-Calculator, Producers, and Policymakers | N-Print
    Descriptive info: N-PRINT: Links to N-Calculator, Producers, and Policymakers.. N-PRINT is an integrated nitrogen footprint model that is still in progress.. Ultimately it will describe:.. How much N is released to the environment;.. 2).. Where that N will be released and the form it will take;.. How the N emissions may circulate and where they may be deposited; and.. 4).. What impacts to ecological and human health may result.. The N-PRINT tool relates the N-Calculator and the planned tools for producers (N-Producer) and policymakers (N-Policy).. The conceptual figure lays out the linkages among these tools.. Please read on for more information about each tool!.. Figure 1:.. Conceptual Diagram of N-PRINT.. The first tool, N-Calculator, encompasses the current effort to develop a nitrogen footprint model that shows a user how much nitrogen his or her activities release to the environment.. N-Calculator asks users questions about their energy use (electricity use, transportation, etc.. ), food consumption (what types and amounts of foods are consumed), and ultimately will cover material consumption (goods and services).. The second tool, N-Producer, will show how producers (farmers and others) can decrease their N footprint while still creating products that are successful in the market.. This module has a clear link with N-Calculator, since changes on the producers’ side of the whole cycle will have an immediate effect for the overall footprint of the consumers.. When using this tool, farmers will answer questions about their farming practices, such as crop type and fertilizer application rate.. After learning their farm’s nitrogen footprint, they will then be able to see how changing their farming practices could reduce the amount of nitrogen released from their farm.. There is another link with the third tool: N-Policy.. N-Policy will eventually determine emission ceilings for reactive nitrogen for regions, which will show how much  ...   module, the Exceedance module will then determine the extent to which specific targets are exceeded (like e.. critical loads, air and water quality targets).. If exceedances occur, the Emission ceiling module can then calculate the maximum emission that can still be allowed in a specific region, without compromising these environmental limits.. The Inverse dispersion module will deliver important input to the Emission ceiling module, since it provides information about the inverse transport routes of the different nitrogen components (i.. not describing the source-receptor route, but the receptor-source route).. Together with information about measures and their costs, the Emission ceiling module can show how the targets can be reached in a cost effective way, by providing information about the possibilities for emission trading between different stakeholders/emitters within the region.. Within the calculated emission ceiling the region is free (within certain limits) to make choices on how the reactive nitrogen is produced (agriculture, traffic, industry, energy production, etc.. ).. The nitrogen production within the region might then be tradable among the sources, as long as the ceiling is not exceeded.. The earlier mentioned module called N Loss uses the output from N-Calculator and/or N-Producer to spatially define where the nitrogen emissions are released and the form that they take, such as nitrous oxide or ammonia.. This module includes N losses to ground and surface waters.. Together, all of the parts of the integrated N-PRINT model will provide a clear picture of the nitrogen releases in a region.. This information will educate regions and empower them to reduce their impact on the environment.. While developed for use in nitrogen-rich regions, it is important to note that N-PRINT can also be used in nitrogen-poor regions to show how increases in resource use (food, energy) will contribute to N losses to the environment..

  • Title: Frequently Asked Questions | N-Print
    Descriptive info: Frequently Asked Questions.. 1) Why is nitrogen important?.. 2) What is reactive nitrogen?.. 3) What is virtual nitrogen?.. How is it calculated?.. 4) What is tertiary sewage treatment?.. How can I know if I have it?.. 5) What can I do to influence my N footprint?.. 6) What else can I do to reduce nitrogen pollution?.. Nitrogen (N) is one of the building blocks of life: it is essential for all plants and animals to survive.. Yet despite making up 80 percent of our atmosphere, none of nitrogen in the air we breathe is accessible to us.. Like being lost at sea and dying of thirst, we are surrounded by nitrogen yet unable to use it in this “inert” form.. Humans and other life require nitrogen in a “fixed,” reactive form.. The amount of reactive nitrogen available served as a cap on the amount of plant life, and thus food, that could grow until researchers discovered a way to manufacture reactive nitrogen.. This discovery one hundred years ago has allowed food production to keep up with the growing human population, but at a high cost.. Today, reactive nitrogen has dramatically increased in our air and water.. It comes primarily from agricultural activities such as fertilizer use and manure runoff, and the burning of fossil fuels.. This “nitrogen pollution” causes profound environmental impacts, including smog, acid rain, forest dieback, coastal ‘dead zones’, biodiversity loss, stratospheric ozone depletion and increased greenhouse gases.. It also affects human health, including respiratory disease and an increased risk for birth defects.. Globally, humans are the main contributor of reactive nitrogen to the environment—far more than all the natural processes combined on continents.. In contrast, human activity contributes just 5-10% of CO.. emissions.. Part of the problem with nitrogen is that in most of the industrialized world, chemical nitrogen fertilizer use is highly inefficient, with 80% of the reactive nitrogen draining off the fields into nearby rivers and streams, or evaporating into the air.. Fortunately, we know how to solve the problem.. This Nitrogen Calculator can help identify ways we can all work to reduce our nitrogen footprint, while continuing to benefit from its life-giving properties.. Reactive nitrogen  ...   runs off of the soil into nearby waters or is lost to the atmosphere; virtual nitrogen is calculated to include the entire food production cycle and includes crop losses, animal waste and more.. Once all of these inputs and releases are tallied, the nitrogen that you consume in your food can be subtracted out; leaving the remaining amount as virtual nitrogen.. Different food products demand different amounts of nitrogen inputs and have varying nitrogen use efficiency, which determines how much of the nitrogen is released into the environment.. Most municipal sewer systems in the United States have primary or secondary treatment, which filter the human waste and break down its biological content.. However, this level of treatment does not remove most of the reactive nitrogen.. Only about 5% of homes in the US are attached to municipal sewer systems with tertiary treatment, which further break down waste to a non-reactive form (N.. ) that does not harm the environment.. Knowing the level of sewage treatment at your local sewage treatment plant is very important because it can impact your N footprint by about 10%.. To find out if you have tertiary sewage treatment, contact your local municipal sewage treatment plant.. While some elements like electricity production are out of your control, there are many things that you can do to reduce your nitrogen footprint.. Here are a few, stratified by food and energy – aspects of the N footprint:.. These use practices that reduce their amount of nitrogen fertilizer runoff into the water and air.. A protein-heavy diet is nitrogen-intensive.. See page 4 of.. It is important to note that doing many of these things even just one day a week can make a big difference over time.. Most of these lifestyle changes will reduce not only your nitrogen footprint, but also your carbon footprint and your ecological footprint.. We already know how to reduce our nitrogen footprint: use less nitrogen fertilizer, eat fewer energy-intensive foods, and try to minimize fuel-heavy forms of transportation, like airplane travel.. You can go one step beyond your personal lifestyle choices and join others in calling for:.. Let your local Representative know you support these measures..
