Measurements were carried out to both quantify the source strength of airborne pollutants in poultry houses as well as to give the potential of the reduction procedures. For this purpose different means are available. They range from preventing the emissions already inside the stable by smart ventilation systems over conditioning of the air in the barn, for example by fogging up, to end of the pipe techniques like scrubbers and dust separators. Numerical simulations can design smart ventilation systems. A multistage facility showed potential in particle reduction as well as in nitrogen reduction.
