Poultry production results in the emission of fine particulate matter (PM2.5). Ammonia, a gas generated during poultry production, has the potential to interact with acid gases to form fine PM or secondary inorganic aerosols (SIA). This study investigated the formation of various SIA species inside a small-scale layer house and commercial-scale broiler house by measuring ammonia, acid gases, PM2.5, and SIA species inside and outside the two facilities.
