Odor Issues and Solutions for Wastewater Treatment

By Laura Haupert, OMI Industries |

Increasingly, wastewater treatment plants must address odors due to volatile contaminants. This guide provides an overview of odor causes and possible remedial actions Processes and applications that emit odor-causing air contaminants are common across many sectors of the chemical process industries (CPI). In many cases, including wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), paper mills, asphalt refineries and other operations, large volumes of odor-causing compounds are generated, and residents of the areas surrounding the facility can be exposed. In the past, these odors were less of an issue because most industrial facilities tended to be located at considerable distances from large residential areas. In more recent times, however, there has been an increase in the number of industrial operations that are located within or near small towns and even large cities. When local residents constantly smell these industrial processes, unhappy neighborhoods are generally the result. The collective voice of the public is now often strong, and has resulted in new regulations regarding odors and odor control at industrial facilities. Many industries can no longer produce odors without facing the consequences of either constant complaints, or fines…
