Through the framework of the aerial pollutants removal from the atmosphere of piggeries using a biofilter, this paper focuses on the effect of the presence of dust on the design of the biofilter. Simultaneous measurements (dust size distribution, dust concentration and NH3 concentrations) are carried out in the casing of the piggery air extraction.
