This report describes research into the application of a film of rapeseed oil on the litter floor of aviary housing for laying hens as a mitigation measure for particulate matter. Distribution of the oil film over the floor and dose-effect relationships were investigated. Emission reductions for PM10 were 31, 64 and 81% at dosages of 15, 30 and 45 ml/m2 respectively.
