dc.description.abstract Commercial broiler chicken facilities release pollutants into the atmosphere. Broiler chickens are chickens raised specifically for meat production. There are some variables (data) that are typically known at broiler chicken facilities. The researchers used math models to develop correlations between these variables and pollutant emissions. These can be used to predict the emissions of pollutants. en_US
