Healthy air produces healthier animals

Concentrated animal farm environments produce air quality and odor challenges for humans and animals alike. Research has shown that PCO can make a difference.

In 2009, Italian scientists studied the effects of putting a photocatalyst in a pig barn. As expected, light-activated chemistry worked to break down many pollutants in the air and ammonia levels in the air decreased.

The pleasant surprise was that the pigs in the barn were healthier and produced a higher yield in their feed. More research is needed on this great opportunity to make our food chain healthier by improving air quality.
