CASE STUDY: industrial odour treatment

INDUSTRIAL ODOUR TREATMENT AND ABATEMENT IN FOOD INDUSTRY

Some production scraps of the industrial sector may give rise to odour and disposal problems, whose solution is often highly costly, both economically and in terms of time and resources. Ejections, malodorous waste and undesired by-products are just a few examples of odour sources whose associated problems get daily resolved in BMB. Industrial odour treatment is a widespread problem in the food industry.

CONTEXT: INDUSTRIAL ODOUR TREATMENT IN THE FOOD SECTOR

In the food industry there are multiple odour sources, yet animal ejections are undoubtedly among the most complex and tedious to manage. As a matter of fact, livestock ejections are the cause of odours and represent a serious environmental issue, as the regulatory framework suggests. The high concentration of ammonia NH3 and the persistent and unpleasant olfactory trace represented the main problematics BMB took charge of.

THE INDUSTRIAL ODOR TREATMENT AND ABATEMENT PLANTS CREATED BY BMB PURIFICATION

CHALLENGES

PERFORMANCE AND COORDINATION

Creating an air purification system calibrated to specific parameters entailed numerous challenges, including the need to guarantee a high abatement of odours and NH3, while maintaining effective extraction of the production rooms. Another aspect that proved challenging was to create a plant capable of adapting to the simultaneous operation of several machines, to be controlled remotely and with easy access for maintenance.

SOLUTION

WET SCRUBBER AND BIOFILTERING MODULES

The purifier installed on site sends the odour- and pollutant-laden air to a wet scrubber tower, which is able to break down excess ammonia. Inside the scrubber, the polluted air is washed by a running aqueous solution, additivated with special reagents that neutralise the ammonia. Downstream of the wet scrubber, a battery of bio-filtering modules ensures the removal of odours, before evacuation to the stack.
