  • Sustainable odour control in urban environments

    Abstract With an ever increasing focus on sustainability, the municipal recycling sector is increasingly locating recycling facilities in urban environments to be closer to their waste sources. The odour control industry needs to respond in providing ever more efficient odour extraction technologies to minimise any odour nuisance to their residential community neighbours. ...

  • High efficiency odour control for wastewater treatment

    Since the banning of sewage sludge disposal at sea in 1998 secondary treatment of sludge is now a vital part of waste water treatment. Initially many water companies opted for incineration, but over the last 10 years other options have been adopted such as producing stabilised sludge and pelletised dried sludge for use as fertiliser for agriculture. Currently over 62% of sludge is used in ...

  • High Rate Biological Odour Control Demonstration for Biosolids Exhausts

    Abstract Biorem has successfully demonstrated its high rate odour control system for biosolids exhausts at Ashbridges Bay sewage treatment plant in Toronto, Ontario. The demonstration used XLD™, a biofiltration media engineered specifically for biosolids odours.

  • Electronic nose sniffs out odour pollution

    The science of smell is set to enhance air quality in the UK, thanks to the development of a pioneering ‘electronic nose’ for industrial odour monitoring.   Available in the UK for the first time, the technology can be used to help improve the control of odours associated with industries such as waste storage and recovery, sewage treatment, composting, chemicals and food ...

  • The smell of success. Odour management in sludge treatment

    Production of municipal solid waste (MSW) is increasing worldwide, although many – primarily industrialized - countries are making major efforts to cap that growth. In France, for example, MSW production has tripled over the past 25 years. In 2006, the country produced 30 million metric tonnes of municipal solid waste, with a substantial portion of this waste ending up in landfills. In keeping ...

  • Humid, corrosive and malodorous waste gases - Case Study

    Example: Production of bio-ethanol Similar tasks: Dryers, Fibre board industry The production of bio-ethanol - fermentation, distillation, pelleting and drying - generates odorous and humid waste gas. Upstream lamellar demisters reduce both drop formation - causing lower VOC destruction efficiency - and solid matters. The regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) ...

  • Treatment of leachate using the DMT MemBioRex® technology

    One of the most difficult waste waters to treat is leachate from a landfill. Leachate is water from the degrading waste and rainfall which percolates through the waste. Leachate usually contains a high concentration of ammonium, low concentrations of phosphor, high salinity, high alkalinity and various concentrations of heavy metals. Combined with strongly fluctuating flows, a high pH and ever ...
