  1. This video discusses siting of animal housing as a management tool to address emissions, odors and dust coming from livestock buildings. Properly siting an animal housing facility is likely the most important odor control technology that can be implemented. Separation distance, predominate wind direction, exposure angle, and terrain are all important considerations for siting facilities.

  2. This video features barriers as a management practice to address dust and odor coming from animal housing. Barriers, or "windbreak walls" are used downwind of fans to reduce forward momentum of airflow, settle out dust particles, and push the exiting plume higher into the atmosphere.

  3. This video features diet manipulation as a management practice to address odor and emissions coming from animal housing and manure storage systems. Reducing nutrients in manure can lead to reductions in emissions.

  4. This video features landscaping or use of Vegetative Environmental Buffers (VEBs) as a management practice to address emissions, odors and dust from animal housing and manure storage structures. VEBs can impact odors and dust by dilution, dispersion, deposition, and collection of compounds. In addition, VEBs can reduce impacts on neighbors by creating aesthetically-pleasing sites.

  5. This video features wet scrubbers as a management practice to address emissions, odors and particulate matter (dust) from animal housing. Wet scrubbers are used on ventilation air as it exits livestock housing. They use liquid to collect dust or particulate matter (PM) and absorb gases from air by using a wet surface, spray system, or wet material bed.
