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.
