  • Odor removal by powdered activated carbon (PAC) in low turbidity drinking water

    The potential of powdered activated carbon (PAC) adsorption for odor removal in low turbidity drinking water was investigated. The batch experiments were conducted under various conditions including PAC species, dosage, contact time and dosing point. The effects of pre-chlorination and PAC dosage on turbidity were also studied. Results showed that adsorption was quite vulnerable to initial ...

  • Smart Series-Odor Management

    Tackling odors at composting facilities is a manageable task made simpler by inventorying and treating all sources and tapping into technology advances. Perhaps one of the most difficult realities that had to be faced 15 to 20 years ago by the composting universe is that the phrase, “odor-free” - at least when it comes to composting - is probably an oxymoron. Feedstocks that biodegrade within the ...

  • An odor predictive model for Rendering applications

    Abstract The rendering process consists of crushing and heating animal remains to produce by-products. The U.S. produces approximately 30 billion pounds of inedible animal by-products annually, exporting a market value of US$ 1.5 billion. Benefits of the rendering process include reducing total waste material, and helping the livestock industry stay competitive over vegetable protein ...

  • Treating Taste & Odor and Disinfecting Drinking Water with UV

    Cornwall is a city of nearly 60,000 people in Ontario, Canada. It is located on the St. Lawrence River, approximately 1,700 km from the Atlantic Ocean and 2,000 km from Lake Ontario. The city draws its drinking water from the St. Lawrence, a reliable and generally good-quality source. However, in the late summer and early fall, dying algae from algae blooms during the warmest months often ...

  • Treatment of unpleasant odors in municipal wastewater treatment plants

    The purpose of this paper to present a case study on how to address the odor problem from secondary sources within a municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) by first identifying the locations of the problem and second by evaluating alternative treatment technologies. The WWTP of Chania is a typical 100,000 equivalent inhabitants-facility in a warm semi-arid environment which is located close ...

  • Case study - Meat processing odor control

    Overview For its first two years of production, a food manufacturer based in South Wales, England, focused its production on potatoes. Neighborhood residents voiced no complaints about odors during this time period. However, as new production lines (including barbequed meats and curried chicken) were added, the complaints began, and it became clear that odor abatement equipment was needed ...

  • Managing Ponds for BOD Reduction and Odor Control

    A large number of food processors utilize ponds to treat their wastewater. Most of the time these ponds are aerobic in which they use oxygen to degrade the wastewater biological oxygen demand (BOD). Fruit and vegetables contain a high amount of simple sugars and other organic compounds that when exposed to water are released into the water stream. These organic compounds require oxygen to degrade ...

  • Food Processing: Odor Control in Edible Oil Processing

    Abstract: The problems with odor around a typical edible oil deodorizer are discussed in detail, and a three-step solution to eliminate these problems is presented. The three steps are a distillate recovery system which recovers most of the fatty acid in the deodorizer vapor discharge as a valuable byproduct, a closed loop barometric cooling water system which keeps the fatladen ...

  • Application of Biotrickling Filter for Odor Control at The Morris Forman Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Pilot-scale study of a biotrickling filter using synthetic, high surface area media was undertaken by MSD Louisville, with the intention of saving the high cost of operating thermal oxidizers. Currently, two recuperative thermal oxidizers are used to treat odorous emissions from various sources. The pilot study showed that it is possible to treat hydrogen sulfide and organic sulfur compounds at ...
