Researchers at Iowa State University recently looked at using black UV light to improve air quality in poultry barns.
Jacek Koziel and colleagues have completed a research project where they developed and tested a novel mitigation technology for ammonia and odour concentrations and barn emissions.
The researchers combined black UV light and a special chemical coating for barn ceilings, barn walls and barn exhaust fans.
Results of this research project showed a reduction in gaseous emissions utilizing this novel approach.
