Abattoirs and Tanneries

Specialised industry odour control with the experts at OdourPro

Key odour challenges for abattoirs and tanneries

  • Meat processing is intrinsically odorous
  • Urban growth encroaching closer to water treatment sites
  • Growing community intolerance of odorous emissions
  • Increased pressure to meet environmental compliance requirements
  • Prevention of Work Health and Safety issues

Industry overview

Odour management for abattoirs and tanneries must take into account the high odour emissions caused by on-site slaughter and processing of livestock. Odours are generated through a number of sources, such as manure, waste product and wastewater. The most appropriate method of control depends on the size of the odour source.

For large and diffuse odours, atmospheric misting or vapour generation could be best, alongside a topical 'blanket' treatment. If, however, the odour can be contained, biofiltration would be a better option, whether that be a skid mounted vessel unit, or an open bed filtration unit. Sites must also abide by EPA odour limits at facility boundaries.
