Solutions for the reduction of bio-aerosol emissions
Negative effects of bio-aerosol and fine dust emissions from livestock production facilities have been the subject of fierce debate, especially in recent times. For this reason, Big Dutchman has initiated tests of different concepts for emission reduction regarding their effectiveness. As a result, the market leader for livestock housing equipment is now able to offer efficient concepts which achieve separation rates of up to 50% both for poultry meat and egg production. Several of these concepts will be introduced in detail at this year’s EuroTier. As compared to wet washers, these concepts do not require water or acid.
“Continuous measurements made by the LUFA Nordwest (Institute for Agricultural Analysis and Research) confirm the economic feasibility and efficiency of our concepts”, says Big Dutchman product manager Dr. Ralf Kosch. With a combination of the Big Dutchman heat exchanger Earny and the proven dust filter StuffNix, it is possible to filter out half of the fine dust emissions from a poultry house measured over a period of one year.
Big Dutchman offers different levels of emission reduction. Concepts which provide reliable filtering while reducing heating costs as well as improving the house climate thanks to heat recovery systems are particularly attractive for poultry producers.
