Sohn, Jae Ho and Hudson, Neale and Gallagher, Erin and Dunlop, Mark and Zeller, Les and Atzeni, Michael (2008) Implementation of an electronic nose for continuous odour monitoring in a poultry shed. Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical, 133 (1). pp. 60-69. ISSN 0925-4005


Continuous odour monitoring technologies are necessary to understand the complex odour-generating mechanisms within poultry housing as well as to identify strategies to reduce the impact of odour emissions on local communities. To evaluate electronic nose (EN) technologies for
continuously assessing odour concentration in poultry housing, a mobile laboratory containing an electronic nose and an associated sample delivery system was deployed to a commercial poultry farm and tested over a broiler production cycle. The results demonstrated that it was possible to develop a model to allow an electronic nose to provide a semi-continuous measurement of odour concentrations. The electronic nose was also able
to demonstrate the influence of shed conditions on odour emissions.
