      Kipster – The most animal and environmentally friendly chicken farm


      • Problem: High particulate matter concentrations in the stable
      • Solution: 8 ASPRA Agro air purifiers
      • Result: 40-45% Particulate matter reduction in the stable


      Problem description

      Friday September 15th and Saturday the 16th 2017 was the official opening of Kipster, the most animal and environmental friendly chicken farm in the world. The chicken farm is unique in its focus on the welfare of animals and the environment. As part of this focus, Kipster paid a lot of attention to the air quality in the chicken farm itself. The starting point was healthier air for chicken and farmer. This has been achieved by installing eight ASPRA Agro recirculation air purifiers. The ASPRA air purifiers clean the air in the chicken farm, directly at the source, reducing the particulate matter concentration INSIDE the farm with 40-45%. Resulting in a reduction in dust, emission, smell and diseases and providing healthier air for animal and farmer.

      In addition to traffic, intensive farming and livestock farming are important air pollution sources. Air purification in the farm itself, where animals and farmer are exposed to air pollution, is therefore important.


      The solution

      With the introduction of the ASPRA Agro air purifier from VFA Solutions, dealer SmitsAgro, supplier for the agricultural sector, opened up the market. The ASPRA Agro air purifier removes all kinds of air pollutants from the air. This includes viruses, bacteria, coarse dust and particulate matter. Microbes, such as Bovine Adenovirus, E. Coli bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus and Yersinia enterocolitica, which frequently occur in cattle and chickens, are permanently removed from the air. Resulting in better air quality in the farm itself.


      The result

      At Kipster, eight ASPRA Agro air purifiers provide healthier air quality in the chicken farm. The energy costs and maintenance of air cleaners are minimal and they are self-cleaning. As a result, the farmer can focus on business and there is no need for expensive filter replacement.
