Air Quality and Odor Control From Swine Production Facilities

  title={Air Quality and Odor Control From Swine Production Facilities},
  author={John P. Chastain},
For an odor to be detected downwind, odorous compounds must be: (a) formed, (b) released to the atmosphere, and (c) transported to the receptor site. These three steps provide the basis for most odor control. If any one of the steps is inhibited, the odor will diminish. Many of the same compounds that cause odor on a hog farm also effect the indoor air quality in the buildings. As a result, many practices that help control odor also improve air quality.

Abstract. The livestock and poultry production industry lacks a current, science-based guide for evaluation of air quality mitigation technologies. Therefore, we performed a science-based review of
Impact Analysis of Environmental Conditions on Odour Dispersion Emitted from Pig House with Complex Terrain Using CFD
With the rise in livestock production, the odour concentration emitted from livestock facilities has significantly increased. For this reason, odour complaints have become a major issue. The
Effectiveness of Indigenous Micro-Organism Treatment of Deep Litter Floor in Pig House Foul Odour Control
Pig (Sus scrofa domesticus) production amongst smallholder farmers is constrained by bad odour arising from pig houses. The objective of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of Indigenous
