Livestock farming plays a crucial role in modern society's production. However, the generation of unpleasant odors during the farming process can cause inconvenience to surrounding residents and potentially have adverse effects on human and animal health. Therefore, odor purification in livestock production becomes a vital aspect.

livestock farming

The odor in livestock farms mainly originates from animal feces, wastewater, bedding, feed residues, respiratory gases from livestock, and secretion from their skin. Among them, animal feces and wastewater are the two major sources of odor in livestock farms.

Based on this premise, traditional livestock farming employs several methods to reduce odor generation:

     ●Ventilation: During the initial construction of livestock farms, emphasis is placed on selecting locations with good ventilation, dryness, and higher elevation to facilitate air circulation.

     ●Scientific Feeding: Feeding appropriate amounts of feed or adding digestive enzymes to the feed can effectively address the issue of acidic odor in animal feces.

     ●Hygiene Maintenance: Timely removal of animal feces and maintaining a clean and dry farming environment can effectively prevent odor from fecal accumulation and bacterial growth risks.

     ●Bedding Management: Good bedding with characteristics of moisture absorption and low thermal conductivity can absorb certain harmful gases.

     ●Placement of Adsorbents: Placing substances with adsorption properties such as charcoal, coal ash, activated carbon, and lime inside the pens can effectively absorb odors in livestock farms.

New Technologies for Deodorizing Livestock Farming

While traditional deodorization methods help reduce the occurrence of odors, they do not fundamentally solve the problem. However, the continuous development of technology and science has made UV deodorization technology more mature and one of the highly sought-after techniques in livestock farming.

UV, as a novel deodorization technology, has been widely applied in the field of livestock farming and has garnered widespread acclaim in practical use. The key lies in utilizing photocatalytic oxidation technology, which involves the synergistic decomposition and oxidation reactions of high-energy UV light beams and ozone to convert the odor molecules into low-molecular compounds, water, and carbon dioxide. This technology not only effectively and safely eliminates odors but also achieves disinfection.


Advantages of UV Deodorization Technology:

High Efficiency: Rapid decomposition of odor molecules, effectively eliminating unpleasant smells.

Safety: Utilizes UV light beams and ozone purification, ensuring no secondary pollution.

Environmental-Friendly: Converts odor molecules into carbon dioxide and water, making it more environmentally friendly.

Comprehensive Effects: Simultaneously deodorizes and disinfects.

Cost-Effective: Lower operational and maintenance costs, easy to operate and maintain.

GMY's UV Deodorization Solutions

As a professional manufacturer and solution provider of UV products, GMY offers various innovative UV deodorization products and solutions. These products not only possess excellent stability and performance but are also designed for easy operation, achieving highly efficient and safe deodorization effects.

185nm UV Lamp Deodorization Solution for Livestock Farming

By utilizing high-energy UV lamps and ozone, high-energy UV light and ozone are generated to synergistically decompose and oxidize odor molecules, transforming the foul gases in livestock farms, such as pig pens, into low-molecular compounds, water, and carbon dioxide, thoroughly achieving purification and deodorization.


172nm Excimer Lamp Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Treatment Solution

The absorption coefficient of 172nm excimer light is about 20 times that of 185nm UV light, making it suitable for treating VOC emissions and air pollution problems. These UV light sources efficiently degrade VOCs, creating a cleaner environment. They are suitable for scenarios such as VOC degradation, odor removal and air purification in wastewater treatment for the pharmaceutical, chemical, and petrochemical industries.
