ACTIVATED CARBON ODOUR TREATMENT AND VENTILATION FOR WASTE TREATMENT PLANT
A refuse processing plant in Kent was suffering from poor air quality and high temperatures internally.
The EHO would not allow untreated extraction to outside due to the high odour intensity within the building.
Exeon designed and installed an odour control system with extract grills located as closely as possible to the particulate source for maximum removal. This enabled the air change rate to be reduced to 3 (from the suggested 4) which had the dual benefit of lower energy consumption and less heat loss.
Air quality was drastically improved following the installation, both in regards to temperature and air particulate.
The extracted air was filtered before discharge, to remove both odour and particulate. The activated carbon filter unit succeeded in removing both 99% + of particulate and also complying with the maximum odour limits level as stipulated by the EHO.
