TUCKER, Ga. – The US Poultry and Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the USPOULTRY Foundation and researchers at North Carolina State Univ. have completed a funded research project to evaluate filtration systems with the goal of reducing ammonia in poultry houses. The research was made possible in part by an endowing Foundation gift from Case Farms and is part of the association’s comprehensive research program encompassing all phases of poultry and egg production and processing.

Dr. Sanjay Shah and colleagues at North Carolina State Univ. concluded that a system to remove ammonia from the poultry house environment could provide improvements in the health and well-being of chickens and turkeys through the development and testing of an ammonia filtration system for use inside a poultry house.

Project #690: Combined Heat Recovery and Ammonia Control System for Broiler Brooding, made significant progress toward the goal of producing a practical ammonia filtration system and will provide the basis for future innovations, according to USPOULTRY.
