Recently the facilities were extended to include in-depth chemical odor analyses. Research on flavor and odor is frequently performed during product development. The equipment in the standardized sensory lab allows the tasters to detect and describe small differences in flavor in an objective way.
In the framework of the reference tasks for the Environment, Nature and Energy policy area, a literature study was made of mitigating measures for odor emissions that can be applied in existing pig and poultry houses in Flanders. This study gives an overview of the scientific research carried out internationally on these measures.
Air scrubbers and and biobeds
The first measurement campaign of the measurement team focused on determining the removal efficiency for ammonia and odor of combined air scrubbers and biobeds attached to fattening pig houses in Flanders.
This final report (in Dutch) summarizes the results of the measurement campaign.
