A year-long study was conducted to evaluate the use of titanium dioxide (TiO2) in pig farming. Two identical barns, each with a housing capacity of 100 pigs, slotted floors and continuous flow production were used in the study. The walls and the ceiling of one of the barns were treated with a prime sealer. The surfaces were left to dry and then a coat of paint containing TiO2 nanoparticles was applied. Average NH3 emissions (converted to 100 kg live weight) were 5,04 kg in the control group and 3.92 kg in the experimental group, respectively, which corresponds to the reduction in emissions in the latter by 22.3 % (NH3).
