Solid Waste Management

OdourPro can reduce odours at your solid waste management site

Key odour challenges for the solid waste management industry

  • Intrinsically odorous nature of solid waste management
  • Urban growth encroaching closer to treatment sites
  • Growing community intolerance of odorous emissions
  • Increased pressure to meet environmental compliance requirements
  • Prevention of Work Health and Safety issues
  • Constant rotation of solid waste stockpile with arrival of new waste
  • Waste is exposed to weather conditions impacting odour emissions
  • Odour treatments must not affect natural organic breakdown process

Industry overview

Solid waste management sites produce high levels of odour due to the biological breakdown of organic material. The most appropriate method of odour 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.
