New research from the University of California-Davis shows sodium bisulfate may help reduce smog-forming air emissions from dry-lot dairies. Emission rates of ethanol and methanol, two compounds that contribute to smog, were lower for corral surfaces treated with sodium bisulfate compared to surfaces that were raked or scraped. The study suggests sodium bisulfate may help reduce smog pollution.
