CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri has partnered with a national corporation to research creating cutting-edge practices for use in the poultry industry.

According to a news release, the Center for Environmental Analysis and Institute for Environmental Health Assessment and Patient Centered Outcomes is partnering with Mountain Wood Products, LLC of Smyrna, Georgia on a $100,000 research facility.

The facility is on Southeast's former University Farm north of Cape Girardeau. It has three 600-square-foot buildings.

Mountain Wood Products' natural food grade solution was created to develop new proprietary technology that can be used in the treatment of floor bedding for poultry houses.

The center will do analytical testing and patent development, and the Institute will examine the effectiveness of the system to improve air quality and human health, according to the news release.

“It will be an excellent opportunity for our environmental science and biological science students to participate in valuable applied research that has the potential to affect agricultural practices around the globe,” said Dr. John Kraemer, director of the Center and chief executive officer of the Institute.

The research begins in Dec. 2014.
