The aim of this study was to determine the concentration level of ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), and carbon dioxide (CO2) in two different fattening pig houses operated with slatted floor and straw flow system. The field study was performed for three day. One large-scale pig house with capacity of 230 pigs operate with deep litter manure system under the fully slatted floor and one small-scale pig feeding operation with capacity of 200 pigs operated by scraper and… Expand

Estimation of landfill gas generation in a municipal solid waste disposal site by LandGEM mathematical model
Anaerobic decomposition of organic compounds in landfills is responsible for generation of greenhouse gases. The present study aimed to determine the total gas and methane emission from a landfillExpand
Cyanide and Hydrogen Sulfide: a review of two blood gases, their environmental sources, and potential risks
The uncontrolled releases of blood gases have been to blame for historic public health catastrophes, but they also play vital roles in modern day industrial processes and within the body. Cyanide,Expand


Exposure assessment to airborne endotoxin, dust, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide in open style swine houses.
Airborne concentrations of total dust and endotoxin in the nursery house were higher than in the other types of swine houses and the finishing house presented the highest exposure risk to NH3, CO2 and H2S. Expand
Sulfuric odorous compounds emitted from pig-feeding operations
Abstract The objective of the study was to quantify the concentration and emission levels of sulfuric odorous compounds emitted from pig-feeding operations. Five types of pig-housing rooms wereExpand
Measurement of Ammonia Emission Rate and Environmental Parameters from Growing-Finishing and Farrowing House during Hot Season
This study was carried out to measure the environmental related parameters from two types of swine houses. Indoor temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide level, ammonia concentration andExpand
Hydrogen sulfide assessment in shallow-pit swine housing and outside manure storage.
Results from this study suggest that pig production buildings involving short-term storage of liquid manure may present H2S exposure risks that have been underestimated until now. Expand
Concentrations and emissions of ammonia in livestock buildings in Northern Europe
Abstract Emissions of ammonia from livestock farming are responsible for the acidification and eutrophication of deposited ammonia in the environment. Research into the ammonia emission fromExpand
Potential Ammonia Emissions from Straw Bedding, Slurry Pit and Concrete Floors in a Group-housing System for Sows
To assess the contribution of straw bedding, concrete floors, slats, and slurry in the pits to ammonia emission in a straw-bedded group-housing system for sows, the ammonia volatilisation response ofExpand
Analysis of Changing Pattern of Noxious Gas Levels with Malodorous Substance Concentrations in Individual Stage of Pig Pens for 24 hrs to Improve Piggery Environment
Noxious gases with malodorous substance concentrations in each stages of pig buildings were determined at a typical 400sow-scale farm to improve piggery environment. Using IAQ-300 and pDR-1000AN,Expand
Production of carbon dioxide in a fattening pig house under field conditions. I. Exhalation by pigs
Abstract Exhalation of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) by pigs was investigated under field conditions in a mechanically ventilated commercial fattening house. The tranquil CO 2 exhalation rate (TCER) by pigsExpand
Influence of building maintenance, environmental factors, and seasons on airborne contaminants of swine confinement buildings.
Bacteria was the most important contaminant in swine confinement buildings, and endotoxin levels found were also very high (mean = 4.9 x 10(3) EU/m3); it is concluded that a wide range of air contamination exists in swining confinement buildings of different maintenance. Expand
Airborne dust, ammonia, microorganisms, and antigens in pig confinement houses and the respiratory health of exposed farm workers.
This study investigated the environmental conditions on pig farms and the respiratory health of pig farmers and their immunological response to airborne contaminants and found that work-related respiratory symptoms, typically chest tightness/wheeze and nasal and eye irritation, were reported by 23 of the 29 workers.
