Foul odors are common at many wastewater treatment facilities. In some ways, unpleasant smells are a reminder that the plant is doing what it is intended to do: treat wastewater.
Odors originate as the organics in the wastewater breakdown, releasing a smell like rotten eggs, ammonia, or garlic. These odors can be detected even at extremely low concentrations, but that is not to say they cannot be controlled.
Evoqua provides odor and corrosion control solutions that prevent and remove H2S, protecting the integrity of infrastructure systems and preserving quality of life.
In wastewater treatment systems the primary odor of concern is hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). High levels of H2S can lead to odor complaints from the surrounding community and create unsafe conditions for workers. In addition, H2S can accelerate corrosion in collection systems and wastewater plants, leading to dangerous leaks and costly repairs.
