Abstract:The main objectives of this project were to evaluate the effectiveness of existing odor control systems (Phase I controls), determine if additional odor control measures were warranted, and evaluate which technologies would best meet the needs of the Brush Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (BCWWTP) located in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. The Township expects that treating the combined off gas of three packed-tower chemical scrubbers (ATAD, sludge handling (SH), and sludge dewatering (DW)) in an activated carbon filter (Phase II controls), will remove up to 85 % of all odors currently generated at the treatment plant. Installation of Phase II controls is currently in the construction and start up phase.
