Technology treats ammonia, odour concentrations and barn emissions.

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.
