  2. Low Cost, High Performance Spectroscopic Ammonia Sensor for Livestock Emissions Monitoring

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The National Research Council has concluded that ammonia is a major concern for air quality at global, national and regional scales. In the US, livestock operations are believed to contribute over 80% of the total emissions of ammonia. Specific interest in ammonia emissions from livestock operations stems from concerns with the negative impacts of high ammonia levels on air quality and environmen ...

  3. Breath Alkanes in Bovine

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This project will test the feasibility of a breath alkane as an indicator of respiratory health in bovine. Significant losses due to bovine respiratory disease (BRD) occur in the U.S. beef industry with estimated annual losses at $1 billion due to higher medical costs, decreased weight gain, lower quality meat and death. BRD is highly transmittable and accounts for approximately 75% of morbidity ...
