Title: 2050 working assumption Manure management 2010-2050

Content: The 2050 pathways model assumes up to 0.7 MtCO2e abatement by 2050, compared with 2007 manure emissions, once changes in number of cattle and proportion of slurry used for Anearobic Digestion have been adjusted for.

The MacLoed et al 2010 cost source does not contain that much abatement.

As an interim fix, assume that the abatement cost ranges from the top end of their manure management cost (£70/tCO2e) to double that cost.

Need to investigate whether the difference in abatement potential is because of different beliefs about abatement potential, or because the MacLoed cost source adjusts for reduced manure through Anaerobic Digestion.
