Industrial Odour Control - Solutions for a Safer Environment
Pollution and odour control are significant challenges at industrial sites. Foul odours can harm staff, equipment, structures, reputation, and the environment. Managing odour levels is crucial, but it can be complex. In this article, we explore the causes and effects of foul industrial odours and discuss CleanaWater's innovative OdourPro odour control systems as a reliable solution.
Causes of Foul Odours in Industrial Waste
Industrial waste's chemical composition determines the severity of odours. Organic waste decomposition and chemical reactions generate foul odours, including hydrogen sulphide (H₂S) or rotten gas, which can be extremely harmful when inhaled.
Many environmental factors can impact odours generated by manufacturing and waste processing operations and CleanWater’s odour experts OdourPro have the expertise to assist with a comprehensive fit-for-purpose solution.
Effects of Foul Odours
Improper waste management and persistent odour problems have severe consequences:
- A decline in staff morale, productivity, and increased turnover
- Heavy government fines
- Rapid equipment and structural corrosion
- Toxicity leading to respiratory illnesses
- Environmental harm and legal penalties
- Reputational damage to your organisation
Australian Government Guidelines for Odour Control
State Environmental Protection Authorities (EPAs) oversee environmental regulations. Compliance includes reducing odorous emissions and implementing ongoing monitoring processes.
Benefits of Industrial Odour Control
Neutralising odours offers significant benefits including but not limited to:
- Ending public complaints and avoiding fines
