Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In phase one of this study an oil spraying system was developed for layers in aviary housing. In phase two the effect of the system on emissions of fine dust was determined. Emissions of PM10 and PM2,5 from the Big Dutchman aviary system were reduced by 18 and 65% respectively. No reductions were found for the Meller aviary. No effect was found on personal dust exposure or egg production. In the oil film rooms higher mortality was found. Further research is needed to clarify this.
