Wilfried Winiwarter

Wilfried studies the human impacts on the nitrogen cycle in the environment. Formost he is interested in the release of trace gases to the atmosphere, gases that pollute the air or contribute to global warming, and he also performs research on means to reduce such emissions. He works with agricultural scientists due to the key role of agriculture in the nitrogen cycle, but also with engineers to describe combustion and industrial release of nitrogen compounds, as well as with economists to project the future need of goods and products that rely on nitrogen in their making.
