  • The next generation biological odour control systems

    Odour is usually caused by the presence of hydrogen sulphide, mercaptans (Organic sulphur components) and ammonia, but also multiple other VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) bringing numerous odour complaints at e.g. WWTP’s, pumping stations and composting plants. An odour control system therefore will have to treat not only hydrogen sulphide, but also other pollutants to reduce the total ...
