Project Number: 3096-66000-003-01
Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2015
Scientists at Fayetteville, AR, will build five ammonia scrubbers developed and patented by the Co-PI. Two scrubbers will be installed at broiler farms in Deleware, two on a farm in Arkansas, and one in Pennsylvania. Ventilation rates and concentrations of ammonia and total suspended particulates will be measured periodically inside the facilities and in exhaust air with and without scrubbers. Nitrogen accumulation in the scrubbers will be quantified, along with the time required for maintenance and operational costs. We will analyze the PM filters and send data to Co-PI.
