We have visibly less particulate matter in the chicken houses matter

Broiler farmer Wim Beltman from Lettele in Overijssel is the owner of two companies, where he keeps a total of 400,000 broiler chickens, including 80,000 free-range chickens. He built two new stables for the latter, in which he installed Freshlight's LED lighting and ionization lamps. Beltman: “We have visibly less particulate matter in the stables. Such a stable is 112 meters long; when I am in the front, I can see the rear wall well. In the past I would have had to ventilate a lot for that. An additional advantage is that I need to heat the stables less. Heat accumulates in the ridge. Because the dust settles, the heat also draws more downwards. Moreover, the electricity costs are lower. The lamps are installed within a day, the energy costs fall immediately. “Beltman calculated that the emissions of particulate matter and ammonia will be reduced by 30 percent and that of coarse dust even by 40 percent. Moreover, it offers advantages in the stable so that you yourself are less bothered by (fine) dust and ammonia. In contrast to an air washer.”
