Scientific seminar: "Aerial pollutants in pig houses: measurements, impact and mitigation options"

Over the last few years, pig husbandry has been significantly intensified, leading to larger production units and more concentrated production regions in the EU. This evolution gave rise to growing concerns about indoor concentrations and emissions of aerial pollutants like ammonia, dust, greenhouse gases and bio-aerosols. Topics of interest involve aspects of occupational and human health, animal health and production, soil acidification and global warming. Related regulations, on both regional and international level, are expected to being further imposed and demand sustainable mitigation techniques.
During this seminar, experts will present their research findings and future perspectives on this subject.
