  • Hydroxyl-Radical Odor Control

    In-Pipe now offers the IPTC(OH-), a hydroxyl radical based odor control option for Lift Stations and WWTP headworks that requires no chemicals, needs only a small footprint and uses minimal electrical power. The IPTC(OH-) chemical free scrubber system connects to the existing lift station vent to oxidize hydrogen sulfide outside of the lift station environment in order to scrub odors before ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Landfill in environmentally sensitive California eliminates odors and reduces odor control costs by over 80%

    The Problem - Co-composting with sewage sludge caused sensitive odor issues at a California landfill. The handling and drying of the sludge as well as regular landfill refuse caused escalating complaints in an especially environmentally conscious county. Since 1995, the landfill had been attempting to solve these nagging odor issues with a wide variety of odor control methods and delivery ...

  • Iowa pork processing plant eliminates waste water treatment odor and reduces odor control costs

    The Problem - Increasing encroachment by new neighbors began causing problems for an Iowa pork processing facility. Though the plant had been there for more than 20 years, new neighbors complained about odors stemming from the waste treatment and composting operations at the plant. The "loud" and frequent complaints of the neighbors brought tremendous regulatory pressure down on the facility. ...

  • WEF/A&WMA Odors And Air Pollutants Conference March, 2010

    Abstract The application of biotrickling filters (BTF) has become commonplace for the removal of hydrogen sulfide and for the reduction of odors from air emissions in wastewater treatment facilities. Operation at a low pH of 1.5-2.0 provides an environment for rapid reproduction of thiooxidans bacteria and metabolism of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). An elimination capacity in excess of 90 gm of ...

  • Reduction of chlorinous odor by the combination of oxidation and ion-exchange treatments

    To better control chlorinous odor in tap water, we assessed the performance of the combination of oxidation (ozonation or advanced oxidation processes, AOP) and ion-exchange treatment. In this process, the hydrophilic neutral fraction (a major dissolved organic matter (DOM) fraction) is converted to ionic species, and these ions and ammonium ion are effectively removed during ion-exchange ...

  • Impact of Lime Dose and Mixing Quality on Odor Generation by Lime-Stabilized Biosolids

    ABSTRACTOdor generated from lime-stabilized biosolids with various lime doses and mixing regimes was studied during two bench scale experiments over four weeks of storage to determine the correlation between the lime stabilization process and odor strength. For the first bench scale experiment, dewatered solids were mixed with various lime doses (4.5% and 11.7% by wet weight) under various mixing ...

  • Case study - Asphalt plant odor control in North Carolina

    Challenge A hot mix asphalt plant located in a rural area of Xorth Carolina has a community of neighbors living approximately a quarter mile away that began complaining about odors from the plant. The plant typically has several trucks a day arriving at the plant to offload liquid asphalt, with a volume that fluctuates depending on workload. The general amount of liquid asphalt ...
