Industrial Water Treatment and Processing

Take advantage of Cleanawater's specialist industry knowledge

Key odour challenges for the industrial water treatment and processing industry

  • Complex industry needs that require a comprehensive strategy
  • 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
  • High volumes of water to treat in the network

Industry overview

Industrial water treatment and processing facilities have strict trade-waste agreements with their municipal wastewater authority on wastewater quality. The Protection of the Environment Operations (POEO) Act outlines additional legal requirements. State regulated Environmental Protection Authorities also measure odour units at site boundaries, enforcing particular limits.

In the industrial water treatment and processing industry, the volumes of wastewater generated usually require onsite treatment before discharge to a wastewater network. The treatment process can cause high levels of odorous gas emissions. Typical odour control interventions include chemical dosing, carbon or biofiltration units, and odour neutralising systems.

Featured case study

AB Mauri's facility generates large amounts of wastewater in the process of yeast production, necessitating an on-site effluent treatment plant. This created unpleasant odours, resulting in complaints from nearby businesses and residents. AB Mauri needed to stop odour problems immediately, so they called Cleanawater.
