Abstract

   The sanitary landfill, located in the city of Pereira, Risaralda, Colombia, is operated by the company Atesa de Occidente S.A ESP, here the disposal of waste from department of Risaralda, some municipalities of Caldas and Norte del Valle del Cauda is carried out, it´s receiving 800 Tons/day, causing impacts to the environment by the emission of offensive gases and odors, causing problems to community.

   In Colombia, the offensive odour problem, is regulated with the Resolution 1541 of 2013, define the levels of inmission, according to the generating activities, carry to landfill to take measures to reduce, and to quantify odors too.

   The objective of the project is expose the experience of odor control employed Biorganic catalysts, which oxidize the compounds that cause offensive odors. At the same time, olfactometry measurements were also carried out at the source and the nearby community, in order to quantify the effectiveness of the product.

   According to methodology used for application of the product has been shown to have a positive response in the management of offensive odors, with the specific conditions of the landfill.
