Five batches of a total of 180 weaned pigs were reared successively in an experimental room on 30 cm deep litter without cleaning between the batches. The litter was a mixture of sawdust from coniferous and beech trees. Water was added to the Litter every 10 days to lower the dust concentration in the room. The total amounts of sawdust and water used were respectively 21.3 kg per pig and 10.21 per pig. The mean temperature of the litter at 20 cm depth recorded during each of the 5 periods varied from 32.5 degrees C to 41.8 degrees C. The average liveweight of the pigs at the beginning and at the end of the post-weaning period was respectively 7.9 +/- 1.2 kg and 24.5 +/- 4.2 kg. The average daily gain was 392 +/- 87 g. The temperature and the relative humidity of the air inside and outside the experimental room and the ventilation rate were continuously recorded in order to calculate the water vapour emission for each batch. The amount of water vapour produced was significantly correlated to the water consumption of the pigs and reached an average of 1 732 g per pig per day. This amount is 36% greater than the reference used for pigs on slatted floors. This value may be used as a reference to calculate the minimum ventilation rate for piggeries with pigs on sawdust deep litters. The amount of compost produced was 19.9 kg per pig with a dry matter content of 44.7%. The amount of nitrogen in the compost was 231 g per pig which is about 50% lower than the reference used for the slurry. The volatile nitrogen emissions are thus much higher from composts than from slurries [less ▲]

Medical waste constitutes one of the waste streams that should be dealt with special priority due to its potential negative impact on public health and on the environment. Incineration is a process that is widely used for the treatment of medical waste. However, self-supporting combustion of medical waste cannot avoid releasing many hazardous pollutants into our environment. The most favored solutions are firing additional fuels of high calorific value and direct purification by air pollution control devices (APCD). This process entails not only large first time investment but also an increase in the operation cost. A novel incinerator is proposed for better utilization of energy of the incineration process. Its originality is essen-tially due to combining a feeder, a rotary grate, a cylindrical gasifier and a “coaxial” secondary combustion chamber into a unique unit. The structure of the incinerator as well as the principle of the incineration process is presented in this paper. A full-scale trial of the novel incinerator with APCD was carried out from March to May 2008 to investigate how the distinct configuration influenced the incineration process. Data on PM, CO, NOX ,O2 were recorded by a continuous emission monitoring system during the study period. Heavy metals and PCCD/Fs were also sampled and measured. Measuring results were compared with the China and U.S. EPA guidelines. The concentrations of contaminants were below their respective limits in emission control standards. Results from testing the novel medical waste incinerator confirmed that this technology has a good suitability for neutralization of medical wastes and purification of flue gases. [less ▲]

Five successive batches of 40 weaned pigs were raised on deep litter of sawdust or straw without changing the litter in between batches. The quantity of litter dry matter utilized in the two cases was 5 kg per pig. The concentrations of gases were measured 8 times, at about one-month intervals, for 6 consecutive days and the ventilation flow was recorded continuously. Pig raising on saw-dust-based litter differed from that with straw by an emission of 2.6 times less ammonia (0.46 vs. 1.21 g per pig per day), 2.1 times less methane (0.77 vs. 1.58 g per pig per day), 3.9 times more N2O (1.39 vs. 0.36 g per pig per day), 4% more CO2 (481 vs. 463 g per pig per day) and 21% more H2O (1126 vs. 933 g per pig per day). All differences were significant. About 58% of the nitrogen excreted by the pigs was recovered in the gas form and for the two litters, about 79% in the form of N-2. [less ▲]

This study examined the influence of emotional valence on the production of DRM false memories (Roediger & McDermott, 1995). Participants were presented with neutral, positive or negative DRM lists for a later recognition (Experiment 1) or recall (Experiment 2) test. In both experiments, confidence and recollective experience (i.e., “Remember-Know” judgements; Tulving, 1985) were also assessed. Results consistently showed that, compared with neutral lists, affective lists induced more false recognition and recall of non presented critical lures. Moreover, although confidence ratings did not differ between the false remembering from the different kinds of lists, “Remember” responses were more often associated with negative than positive and neutral false remembering of the critical lures. In contrast, positive false remembering of the critical lures was more often associated with “Know” responses. These results are discussed in light of the Paradoxical Negative Emotion (PNE) hypothesis (Porter et al., 2008). [less ▲]
