Maatregelen ter vermindering van fijnstofemissie uit de pluimveehouderij: ionisatie bij leghennen in volièrehuisvesting = Measures to reduce fine dust emission from poultry houses: ionization in aviary housing for layers

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In this study the effect of a commercially available ionization system on emissions of fine dust from layers in aviary housing was investigated. Emissions of PM10 and PM2,5 were reduced by 23 and 38% respectively. No effect was found on personal dust exposure, animal behavior or animal performance. Optimizations, especially with regard to dust removal, are necessary to make the system applicable in layer houses in practice.
