Each odour has a source and manifests itself differently. As all organic materials decompose, they create several compounds; most of them are volatile and able to move from liquid or solid to gaseous states relatively easily, with many of them being odorous. Conditions in the solid waste industry are perfect for odour formation.

Most of the odours created in waste materials are volatile organic compounds, including organic acids, mercaptans, aldehydes, ketones, and a host of other compounds. Mitigation often requires a combination of different technologies and products.

Odours can be a simple nuisance, can cause temporary symptoms such as headaches and nausea, or can be toxic and cause serious harmful effects on the environment or the health of people and animals. Odour can cause issues with worker safety as well as with the surrounding general public, which in turn can lead to poor relations if mitigation steps are not taken.

Recent technological breakthroughs are enabling waste handling operations to mitigate odours more effectively than ever. CleanaWater’s Topical Odour Control, Bektra 830, tackles odour at the source by combining several effective approaches for maximum performance in a convenient and environmentally responsible formulation.

We know that most problematic odours afflicting waste handling areas are biological. Bektra 830 penetrates soils, oil and grease to tackle the source of the odour. Bektra 830 provides immediate odour relief in a pleasant neutralising foaming spray while dispersing the organic bio-stimulant components to naturally accelerate the digestion of offensive organics and deactivate the odour generating mechanism for long term relief.

Bektra 830 reduces a broad spectrum of malodours by neutralising existing odours and preventing odour generation while leaving a fresh keynote behind. Designed for easy use, spray and walk away, while the product continues to work, soaking into cracks and crevices for deep penetrating effect.

This product is readily biodegradable, non-toxic, made from renewable resources, NPE-free, and non-hazardous to humans and animals.

Where To Use Topical Applications

Bektra 830’s 6 in 1 Spray Attack offers grease-cutting detergents containing prebiotics, probiotics and biostimulants to prevent odours, while permanently neutralising existing odours leaving a residual freshness after treatment. This complex formulation permits convenient application to target the source of the odour, it can also be applied to wet surfaces such as settling lagoons and leachate ponds.

This spray can be used in

  • Garbage Rooms
  • Kennels and Animal Holding Areas
  • Material Recovery
  • Transfer Stations
  • Composting
  • Sewage Treatment
  • Landfills
  • Agri-food Production
  • Settling Lagoons and Leachate Ponds

Bektra 830F is a penetrating foam odour neutralising concentrate that cleans and prevents offensive odours in one easy step. It contains powerful detergents, to break up heavy soils and grease, natural bio-stimulants to deactivate odour producing mechanisms and non-aldehyde odour elimination technology that has been optimized for reducing amines, terpenes and thiols. The concentrated formula is ideal for treating large surface areas that are heavily soiled with organics.
