Due to the variety of organic waste materials processed by composting facilities, odors may become problems. When odors reach the surrounding community of a facility, it can create nuisance for the residents, affect their quality of life, and potentially infringe local regulations. The weather conditions and the variations in the compost composition may also drastically change the odor emissions.
To reduce its impact on its community, one of Europe’s largest composting sites chose the OdoWatch Platform from Odotech to monitor odor emissions in real time. After two (2) years, the site managed to reduce its odor emissions by nearly seventy-five percent (75%) thanks to the continuous improvements of its composting process made possible by OdoWatch.
The white paper "Real-time odor monitoring platform used to reduce operating cost at biosolid composting plant" describes how composting site operators can work with detailed data about their odor sources and extent of their emissions to reduce their odor impact on communities.
Odotech is releasing today an updated version of this white paper to help managers, operators, consultants and regulators understand how a real-time monitoring platform can help in optimizing site operations and reduce odor impacts.
