Abstract: The goal of this research project consists to reduce the ammonia emissions produced from the floor in growing-finishing pig barns. To do this, three main factors were investigated: the slats section shapes, the presence of an epoxy coating and the presence of a notch along the slats. This project is divided into two parts. The first part consisted to develop slats allowing to reduce the soiled surfaces. Prototypes developed during this part of the project resulted in soiled surfaces reduction ranging between 41 and 80 %, compared to a control slat. The second part consisted to measure ammonia emission of the developed prototypes when subjected to fouling simulations. Only the presence of a notch allowed to reduce ammonia emissions significantly. Emission reductions measured ranged between 22 and 42 %, in comparison with a control slat.
