From 18 - 20 September this year's "BTU conference on building construction, technology and environment" took place at the University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany.
VERA and especially the revision of the test protocol "housing systems" was presented in a poster and brief oral presentation. The implementation of new measurement methods for emission reduction in naturally ventilated cattle houses was received well by the audience as this is a frequent item in current research studies.
250 participants from research, administration, associations, education and consultants as well as manufacturers discussed latest research results and informed themselves about innovative product developments. Key focus laid on new research results on animal-friendly husbandry of cattle, pigs and poultry as well as on latest findings on emission reduction.
