Thesis Topic/Title:
Dust Reduction From Livestock Buildings


No doubt that one of the major source of pollution in poultry buildings is the bedding (Banhazi et al., 2008). Capturing/removing emission at the point of exit is still one of the most obvious ways of reducing airborne emission from both agricultural and industrial facilities. Although the principles of removing pollutants from air is well known, there are no commercially available tools developed for poultry farmers to harness air-cleaning technologies that have been proven in other industrial applications. Thus building on previous and successful studies (Banhazi, 2007); the development of an air-scraper specially designed for poultry buildings would deliver practical benefits for producers. in this project we will aim to improve the design of air-scrapers to enhance the pollutant removal capacity of the filtration device.
