Odour Abatement

Mesones  The proposed Advanced Biofiltration (mixed organic/inorganic) can be considered the Best Available Technology (BAT) to treat odorous emissions from MSW treatment plants, composting and WWTP plants among others, typically achieving final odour concentrations below 1000 uoE/m3 or 95% efficiency.

   The applied sensorics includes the most relevant parameters (COVs, H2S, NH3). The integration of these parameters in the Airadvanced™ platform allows real-time monitoring of the correct functioning of the biofilter and thanks to the meteorological (WRF) and dispersion (CALPUFF) models allows the client to visualize the impact in real time and the prediction of impacts up to 72 hours.

WEF collection Systems odors

The WEF Collection Systems Digital Conference 2020 program is published and there are a couple of presentations dealing with odor control in case you want to know a bit more about this.

The presentations are scheduled to be within Session 1: Pump Stations/Odors, and they are the following:

 

P17IP    The odor management associated with the operation of the El Rutal Biosolids Management Center has been carried out through different evaluation mechanisms such as: modeling of dispersion of gases and odors before and during the operation of the Center, continuous monitoring of odors, participation of the residents in the city center of Montenegro and Rungue.

   The continuous analysis of the results delivered by the previously described mechanisms plus the consideration of atmospheric stability indicators (air quality and ventilation factor). allowed to determine episodes in which meteorological factors conditioned rises in the perception of odor concluding in the evaluation and modification of operational slogans in order to minimize the emission of odors.
