The University of Missouri awarded the $50,000 Mizzou Advantage grant to Dr. Teng Teeh Lim to develop a computer model as a tool to help large producers understand the amount of their emissions and what they can do to address odor or emission issues.
"Measurement of emissions in the field can be very costly, very tedious to conduct and requires such hard work, set up and equipment maintenance for forever changing pollutants and exhaust from such facilities," Dr. Teng Teeh Lim [University of Missouri Extension researcher] said.
The computer model will be available on line late in 2011.
