AVT session 5: Applying the Anoxia Technique

  1. 1. Harm Kiezebrink Research Fellow Faculty of Veterinary Science Queensland University
  2. 2. 2 Culling poultry The Anoxia method  100% efficient & effective in killing animals humanly according to International standards  Lowest number of responders needed to operate  Lowest running costs  No extensive training of operators needed  Easy to implement at any given location  No contact between humans & animals  Generally applicable, regardless the type of housing or animal quantities  Integrates the use of soap to reduce the virus load © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  3. 3. 3 Decontamination The Anoxia technique contributes to the cleaning & disinfection process  Soaks the birds with soapy water  Prevents contaminated dust to get airborne during depopulation  Contributes to the safety of the responders during depopulation due to the reduced virus loads  The soap will help to reduce the virus load in dusty areas  Contributes to pest control © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  4. 4. 4 Occupational Health & Safety The Anoxia technique contributes to limit OH&S risks  Limits the number of responders  Limits Animal – to – Human contact  The soap prevents contaminated materials to stick to the Personal Protection Equipment  Prevents heat stress  The foam helps to cool down the temperature in the direct proximity of the responders © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  5. 5. 5 Applying the Anoxia technique Small flocks  Disposable containers are used  Culling  Conservation & storage  Transportation © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  6. 6. 6 Applying the Anoxia technique Small flocks  A single nozzle system can be used to cull up to 12.000 birds within a time frame of 8 hours.  The nitrogen source could be a small size nitrogen generator with a capacity of 1m3 p/min © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  7. 7. 7 Applying the Anoxia technique Large flocks - broilers  A multi nozzle Anoxia robot produces 6 m3 foam per minute  The Anoxia robot is self- propelled and remote controlled  The room can be flooded with foam  Flocks can be separated in temporary pens; the Anoxia robot fills the pens separately © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  8. 8. 8 Applying the Anoxia technique Large flocks - Layers  Two Anoxia multi nozzle robots produce up to 12 m3 foam per minute  The robots robot is self- propelled and remote controlled  The Anoxia robots move between the Tiers with cages  The cages are flooded with foam © 2014 Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB
  9. 9. Question and Answer Reflection: What’s on your mind?  9 9 © AVT Applied Veterinary Technologies Europe AB Address details: c/o INTRED, Södra Hamnen 2, 45142 Uddevalla, Sweden Org.nr: 556792-1944 - Phone: +44 7452 272 358- E-mail: harm.kie@gmail.com
