Alternative to Kitchen Vent

Currently, my very old kitchen does not have a vent. The only vent is the main stack about 30 feet away...and it obviously doesn't do a very good job. So the kitchen trap is constantly emptying.

So now I'm remodeling...but I'd really prefer not to have to put in a vertical stack because that would turn a minor job into a MAJOR job (opening a wall for two stories, roof work, etc, etc).

Is there any type of alternative to a normal vent? Some fixture or special fitting?

Any suggestions?

If allowed by your local Building Codes, an air admittance valve would work very well, and they're easy to install.
Good Luck!
