Im Rahmen des deutsch-niederländischen INTERREG-Projekts BEL AIR wurden Lösungen für saubere und gesunde Luft bei Geflügelmastbetrieben getestet und entwickelt, um gesundheitlichen Gefahren durch Feinstaub- und Endotoxin-Emissionen vorzubeugen.
As part of the German-Dutch INTERREG project BEL AIR, which develops solutions for clean and healthy air in poultry farms, numerous sampling and air measurements were carried out by the eleven project partners.
In the framework of the German-Dutch INTERREG project BEL AIR, solutions for clean and healthy air at poultry farms are tested and developed to prevent health risks caused by fine dust and endotoxin emissions.
Within the BEL AIR project, a dust sensor was adapted and further developed, which can now continuously measure the fine dust concentration in the barn without any maintenance effort - an important success for the German-Dutch cooperation project.
For many years, the LAL test was the common method for analysing entotoxin samples. Within BEL AIR, however, a gentler, more sustainable and clearer analysis method has now been established with the rFC test.
An application for an extension of the INTERREG V A project BEL AIR was successful. The German-Dutch cooperation project led by GIQS e.V. had applied for funds available from the INTERREG programme in spring 2021.
Der niederländische BEL AIR-Partner DLV Advies hat Anfang 2020 im Rahmen der Aktivitäten zur Verringerung von Feinstaub- und Endotoxinemissionen eine Pilotstudie durchgeführt, bei der Feinstaub in einem Masthuhnbetrieb gemessen wurde. Mit einem neu entwickelten Sensor führte der Betrieb über vier Wochen kontinuierlich Feinstaubmessungen im Stall durch.
On the occasion of the mid-term of the BEL AIR project, representatives of all nine project partners met in mid-February 2020 in the Technology Centre Kleve to exchange information on the activities and progress made so far.
As part of the Animal Welfare Initiative, the Innovation Prize 2019 was awarded in Berlin at the beginning of April in the presence of Federal Minister of Agriculture Julia Klöckner. GIQS project partner Gé Backus from the Dutch company DLV Intensief Advies was one of the four winners to receive financial support.
