Abstract:

Odor components are simply small volatile and non-volatile molecules emitted from municipal wastewater treatment and industrial facilities, such as composting, bio-solids management and rendering operations. Chemicals, prevalent in airstreams, such as sulphur compounds, ammonia, amines, and aldehydes are well known to cause nuisance odors. Due to limitations in conventional odor control technologies (adsorption or scrubbing), plant operators are increasingly accepting the use of biofiltration for odor control.
