Jinyoung farm – first Porcus air scrubber in South Korea.
In the summer of 2019, we installed our first Porcus Biological air scrubber in the Republic of Korea, on the Jinyoung farm. Jinyoung Farm has since its establishment in 1997 developed until currently 700 productive sows and is in continuous expansion. The farm is using Hydromix liquid feeding from Big Dutchman; it was natural to involve Big Dutchman also in the ongoing renovation and expansion plan of its climate system, and odour management.
The project was commissioned by Taewon Trade Co, Ltd., an agent in the region for our parent company Big Dutchman. Last year Jinyoung Farm decided to install a biological air scrubber to reduce odour from the farms finisher building, to make the local environment more pleasant for the neighbours. The choice of a biological air scrubber was to achieve a higher percentage of smell reduction. The modular design made it easier to install for our local engineers and ongoing maintenance more simple for the farmer workers.
So far, the farmer is very pleased with the performance of the system, with no complaints from the neighbours. Because of this, other farmers and government agencies are also interested in this level of air scrubbing. As a result, in the short term, we expect to install more similar systems in the market. With regards to next developments, the farm intends to switch to Big Dutchman ventilation. After this, the farmer will extend air scrubbing to the nursery, mating, gestation and farrowing houses, which is another testament as to how the system has been performing well.
