Is Good For All Of Us
Reducing Emissions by Reducing Fuel Use is Good for the Bottom Line
By trapping ammonia in litter, poultry house ammonia emissions in the environment are lowered. However, the positive environmental impact of PLT® use goes far beyond binding ammonia.
Impact of PLT on CO2 Emissions
The Sustainability Research Group at the University of Toledo evaluated the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions from PLT application in poultry house operations. Reductions in CO2 emissions were found in two areas:
- Lower energy use over a 6 week grow-out from reduction in heating fuel and use of ventilation electricity
- CO2 impact from the production and distribution of PLT
Application of one ton of PLT reduced propane consumption by 400 – 625 gallons on average and saved 4,350 kW of electricity over a 6-week growout.
