  • 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. ...

  • Biological Odour Control for wheelie bins

    One of the problems with large wheelie bins used for waste storage is that organic deposits build up and these give rise to bad odours. From time to time the bins are washed to remove the organic deposits. However in many cases the odours are not removed so the bin may look clean but not smell clean. There are a number of different types of systems used to wash the bins and BioFuture have worked ...

  • 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 ...

  • Waste Transfer Station Odours - Case Study

    Application Greenstar Ltd. who operate the large waste transfer station at Ballyogan needed to ensure working conditions inside the building were acceptable to the workforce and that the surrounding area did not suffer from odourous emissions. An early part of the design process called for an efficient extraction system to draw air from the Reception Hall and the Baling Hall to meet these ...

  • Odour control on waste water treatment plants and pumping stations using DMT biotrickling filtration

    Lengthy detention times and warm weather / climate leads to septic waste water producing copious amounts of not only hydrogen sulphide, but also ammonia, organic sulphides, mercaptans, bringing numerous odour complaints on waste water treatment plants ( WWTP’s ) and pumping stations. An odour abatement unit therefore will have to treat not only hydrogen sulphide, but also other pollutants ...

  • 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 ...

  • Synthetic Media Biofilter Eliminates Hydrogen Sulphide and Other Reduced Sulphur Compound Odours

    Abstract Innovative synthetic biofilter media has revolutionized biofilter technology for removal of hydrogen sulphide (H:S) odours from several wastewater treatment facilities across North America. The major drawback of biofilter technology in the past was use of organic wood-based media, which had several problems including high-pressure drop, frequent media replacement, lack of ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • Holmestown waste management facility, Wicklow, Ireland

    AFS were appointed by Wicklow County Council to design, build and install a flaring system that would last the life-cycle of their new waste management facility. We designed a flare that could safely extract gases being generated by the new facility; the flare could operate at up to 2000m3/hr but would also operate effectively at very low flow rates. The current configuration includes a ...

  • 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) ...
