BIO-FILTERS: A “GREENER” APPROACH TO ODOR CONTROL
Abstract:Municipal wastewater collection and treatment facilities increasingly are being asked to be better neighbors by greatly lowering or eliminating the discharge of offensive odors from their operations. Improved odor control methods utilizing a new breed of biological treatment systems may give many municipalities a more cost effective, less maintenance intensive weapon to combat odor complaints while reducing the need for hazardous chemical additions. Three case histories are presented illustrating the use of this innovative “green” technology in the areas of odor source identification/air modeling, pilot testing and procurement.
