Summary

Robustness analysis biotechnologies
    A key factor in the selection of the most appropriate technology for odour treatment is the ability of the system to recover from process fluctuations and operational upsets. However, the number of studies focused on the robustness of biotechnologies for odour abatement is scarce. The objective of the present study was to perform robustness assays with different bioreactors at laboratory scale treating synthetic mixtures of odorous compounds at trace level concentrations (mg m-3 - µg m-3). The results show the capacity of the biotechnologies to recover from operational failures in short periods of time. Besides, a semi-quantitative study was conducted to compare the robustness of physico-chemical and biological technologies under real operating conditions. The study confirmed the previous results and supports biotechnologies as the optimal solution for odour treatment.

sesion4 recasens01This article presents the highlights of a study carried out in order to determine the odour impact of a Street Cleaning Station located in the city and surrounded by apartments. Therefore, it shows the selection process of the metholodgy that meets the best the goals of the study, the physical and operational characteristics of the plant, the time available and the Budget.

The results of this study show the need of customising the methodology to each Project, taking into account all the issues that can contribute to odour impact generation. Thanks to this project, the company could convince its neighbours and the Administration that no impact was generated, so the presence of the plant was compatible with the apartments in the building.

   Many Environmental Treatment and Valorisation Plants (ITVAs), as wastewater treatment plants, composting plants, biomethanisation plants,... and other often generate odoriferous emissions which if not treated properly can actually cause serious nuisance to neighbors.
