A critical review of the robustness of the UK government’s air quality plan and expected compliance dates (2016)
Journal Article
Williams, B., Barnes, J., Chatterton, T., Hayes, E. T., & Longhurst, J. (2016). A critical review of the robustness of the UK government’s air quality plan and expected compliance dates. https://doi.org/10.2495/AIR160011

Globally, poor air quality is the most significant environmental health concern. Across Europe, 400,000 deaths were attributed to air pollution in 2012, whilst in the UK over 50,000 deaths per year are due to a combination of gaseous and particulate...

A dispersion modelling approach to determine the odour impact of intensive poultry production units in Ireland (2006)
Journal Article
Hayes, E. T., Curran, T. P., Hayes, E. T., Curran, T., & Dodd, V. A. (2006). A dispersion modelling approach to determine the odour impact of intensive poultry production units in Ireland. Bioresource Technology, 97(15), 1773-1779. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biortech.2005.09.019

The use of atmospheric dispersion modelling has become more common for the determination of odour impacts from existing poultry production facilities and the assessment of setback distances for new facilities. Setback distances for broiler, layer and... Read More about A dispersion modelling approach to determine the odour impact of intensive poultry production units in Ireland.

Odour and ammonia emissions from intensive pig units in Ireland (2006)
Journal Article
Curran, T. P., Hayes, E. T., Hayes, E. T., Curran, T., & Dodd, V. A. (2006). Odour and ammonia emissions from intensive pig units in Ireland. Bioresource Technology, 97(7), 940-948. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biortech.2005.04.023

Odour and ammonia emissions were measured at four intensive pig units in Ireland. Odour samples were collected on-site and analysed for odour concentration using an olfactometer. Ammonia concentrations in the exhaust ventilation air were measured usi... Read More about Odour and ammonia emissions from intensive pig units in Ireland.
