Odour Abatement

sesion07 lopez03   Galindo waste water treatment plant was designed in the 1980s on the plot of a dump in a highly industrialized area. The industrial conversion plan and urban development have remodeled the surrounding landscape, making it an urban established plant, causing conditions to which the plant could not offer solutions.

   Aware that the plant should not produce a significant change in the quality of resident’s life, the Consorcio de Aguas Bilbao Bizkaia (CABB) has designed an ambitious plan of minimization of the odor significance, scheduled in four stages.

For this reason, most of the plants are located in isolated areas far from population and even far from other industries. In this Case Study, the location very near a urban area, required the implementation of a solution.
