What causes foul odour emissions?

Foul smells are caused by the release of odorous compounds in wastewater, sludge and organic waste. These compounds evaporate and spread quickly, which is why they are referred to as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The most common VOC in industrial waste is hydrogen sulphide, which you can identify by its infamous rotten egg smell. Hydrogen sulphide forms through microbial anaerobic digestion.

We try to eliminate VOCs while they’re still in their liquid or sludge state, trapping them within a media bed of activated carbon or through chemical treatments. Being as volatile as they are, this is not always possible. Fortunately, our odour control systems can reduce 90-100% of odours, even when they have diffused across broad areas such as landfills.
