Recycling Facility Odours Eradicated
The problem was that waste was being emptied from the collection vehicles into a modern waste washing plant. The plant scrubs contamination from sand, grit and stone, liberating unwanted lightweight matter and removing heavy metal contamination from waste water. The washing plant process resulted in the creation of very strong odours, upsetting neighbours.
Clearwater Technology conducted a detailed analysis of the biology causing the odours and provided a fabric filter and bioadditive mix that transformed the active biology within the waste washing plant.
Within three days, the odours were virtually eradicated, and the active bio additives reduced the TSS from over 260 m/l to under 20 m/l within a few weeks of installing the solution. Within two weeks, large residuals of built-up sludge showed a significant reduction. The plant is now stabilised and delivering optimum processing performance, with minimal sludge production and acceptable odours.
