Problem statement: The effectiveness of ozone in reducing odor emission from liquid animal manure was evaluated under batch and continuous treatment operations. Results: The results indicated that the use of ozone for the treatment of animal manure proved to be effective in reducing the odor offensiveness. A minimum 3.4 level out of 10 (66% reduction) was achieved in the continuous operation; while a minimum of 3.1 (69% reduction) was achieved in the batch operation. Increasing the level of… 

Ozone in the food industry: Principles of ozone treatment, mechanisms of action, and applications: An overview

The role, contribution, importance, and impact of ozone as a decontaminating agent used to control and eliminate the presence of microorganisms in food products as well as to extend their shelf-life and remove undesirable odors is reviewed.

Simultaneous removal of odourous and organic compounds in septic tanks using an electrolytic oxidation system

AbstractOdour, which is emitted from septic tanks treating excrement and manure, has become public concerns. Reduced sulphur compounds, such as hydrogen sulphide, are the main sources of the

Function of plasma and electrostatics for keeping quality of agricultural produce in post-harvest stage

High-voltage and plasma applications to keep the freshness and quality of agricultural produce are described focusing on functions of plasma in each application of a post-harvest stage. The high



Physicochemical characteristics of animal and municipal wastes decomposed in arid soils.

MWC may be considered an adequate substitute for BM or FYM, whenever the latter are in short supply, and when the organic materials were incubated with arid soils and monitored for mean residence times, MWC was slightly more resistant to decomposition than BM orFYM.
