Abstract
Measurements of indoor concentrations and emissions at different pig fattening facilities took place in order to evaluate the indoor air quality and emissions. Particulate matter (PM), more specifically PM10, PM2.5 and PM1, was measured simultaneously with ammonia and greenhouse gases (CH4, N2O, CO2). Based on these findings, an estimation was made of the total emissions for both fattening pigs and the total pig industry in Flanders. Furthermore, personal PM measurements were performed in order to assess the occupational exposure of the farmer and the veterinarian. Measurements of PM took place during different working tasks and the respective time weighted average exposure levels were assessed for both farmer and veterinarian.
