ABSTRACT:
Breeding facilities are the source of numerous complaints about odour nuisance. For this reason, numerous attempts are performeed to reduce the odour nuisance of such objects. One of the methods of deodorisation of gases from breeding facilities might be the sorption of odorants in water scrubbers. This article presents the effectiveness of removing this type of impurities from water scrubbers with suspended sand filling. An increase in deodorisation efficiency was observed, compared to water scrubbers without fill from 55% to 62% depending on the time of gas contact with the sorbent in the scrubbers.
