You’ve heard of the rising popularity of the ‘tree change’, where urban residents relocate to the country in search of fresh air. Once there, they find that ‘clean country air’ often contains odours, some not so pleasant. Residents complain that odours diminish their comfort, quality of life and property values.
Some odour is unavoidable in certain agricultural operations. The market demands consistent quantity, quality, and competitive protein that ties together intensive farming, close to market processing and cost effective rendering facilities.
Agricultural industries with high odour potential include:
- Poultry (broiler and hatchery)
- Processing plants
- Pet foods
- Mushroom growing
- Waste to energy
A significant body of research has identified the link between odorous gases and animal health and feed conversion. The research also demonstrates the financial benefits of providing proper ventilation and odour treatment.
Bioaction can provide a number of practical and cost effective solutions for the agri industry to:
- Improve occupational safety when working around hazardous gases
- Allow you to meet strict environmental compliance
- Improve community relations
- Improve animal welfare
- Increase food conversion and yield
