Industrial Odour & Emission Control Systems

Who uses Odour & Emission Control systems?

There are many companies who we have worked alongside to reduce their air pollution. These include:

  1. Waste Transfer Sites (WTS), Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), both can be utilising household waste for Energy Recovery Facilities (ERF)
  2. Anaerobic Digestion Facilities
  3. Food Processing Companies, including among many; Abbatoirs, Poultry processing, Garlic & Sauce production
  4. GRP Manufacturing sites, giving off Styrene Fumes
  5. Chemical Production sites
  6. Sewage Treatment sites and landfill sites

What type of Odour & Emission Control systems are there?

Our systems include the following types of installation:

  1. Activated Carbon treatment – Dry Scrubbers
  2. Wet Scrubbers, including Acid and Water
  3. Biofilters

What is Odour & Emission control?

Legislation to protect our environment increasingly requires a gas-phase emission control system to reduce harmful gas emissions or control nuisance odours.

Odour & Emission control systems reduce the level of air pollution via multiple types of filtration systems, specifically designed to suit the need. Getting the right type of ventilation to deal with fumes and odours such as waste can help make a positive impact on the environment and reduce toxic fumes within the workplace.

Why is it needed?

Usually these air pollution streams are caused by extraction of odorous air from the factory, which is essential for workers health. However there is discharge limits that must be met. Neighbourhoods have the right to raise issues with unpleasant odours, and can enforce changes in discharge levels of Odours and Emissions.

EXEON’s expert advice, innovative design and practical solutions ensure you can benefit from an emission control system that protects both your workforce and local environment. Industrial gas cleaning systems are vital in a range of working environments.

Odour control Methods

Industrial odour and emission control systems enable companies to be fully compliant with clean air regulations by reducing harmful emissions and nuisance odours. They are an efficient means to ensure that you retain a healthy environment for employees and neighbours.

There is a range of different methods available to reduce odour and emissions across a variety of industrial processes and installations. 

Industrial activated carbon filter

Carbon air filtration systems are an effective means by which to remove gases and harmful odours. They are designed to filter emissions through a bed of activated carbon. They help to combat volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be released from a range of products and processes. They are commonly used to remove harmful and unpleasant odours.

Emission control system

Emission control systems monitor the harmful byproducts of a range of industrial processes and work to reduce these harmful byproducts that would otherwise be released. They will usually be designed and tailored to the particular installation where they are to be deployed. They are designed to efficiently remove the risk of harmful or unpleasant emissions entering the local environment.

Odour filtration

Odour filtration technologies help to suppress and control unpleasant odours from treatment plants. They are usually installed where wastewater treatments plants release ammonia, sulphur compounds and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They work to ensure that wastewater treatment plants don’t become a problem for people living and working locally.


Ventilation for Waste Processing Facility

Waste management and recycling operations can pose a range of health risks to operators as well as the wider environment. Waste management facilities involve handling all types of products and potentially contaminated materials. Ventilation and extraction systems ensure that odours, fumes, dust and particles are reduced to mitigate hazards to human health. These ventilation systems are essential in any facility where waste is handled.

Odour control

Nuisance and hazardous odours can be generated by a huge range of industrial processes. There are a significant number of compounds that can lead to undesirable odours, all of which have the potential to cause significant problems with people working on-site and within the neighbouring environment. Odour control reduces the concentration of odorous chemicals to alleviate local environmental issues.

Pollution control system

Air pollutants are caused by almost every industrial process, such as raw material sourcing, maintenance and repair services, product manufacturing, food processing and distribution. How these are managed is critical to ensuring that your plant remains safe and compliant. Pollution control systems are used in a wide range of industries. These prevent the release of vapours, chemicals and dust, as well as filter and purify the air within the work environment. Blowers or fans direct industrial exhaust and emissions into the air pollution control equipment and systems, which then remove or reduce air pollutants.
