Animal feeding operations emit gases and particulate matter (PM). The gases and PM emissions can negatively impact the environment and human and animal health locally, regionally, and globally. Some gases are odorous, some, including ammonia and hydrogen sulfide, can be hazardous; others like carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide are greenhouse gases. Some gases react with other chemicals in the atmosphere to produce fine particulates that contribute to respiratory diseases, haze and impaired visibility. This fact sheet describes the use of wet scrubbers to remove potentially harmful gases from the air exhausted from barns housing livestock or poultry.
