Environmental remediation project uses odour control technologyPublished 16/5 at 12:33
In the US an OdorBoss DB-60G, manufactured by Dust Control Technology, has helped a large urban renewal project in Massachusetts to suppress odour emitted by contaminated soil.
Environmental consulting company TRC Companies found coal tar waste had leached into the ground of an old gas plant intended for the new location of the Worcester Regional Transit Authority’s maintenance and operations facility.
During remediation, operators chose to use the OdorBoss DB-60G and its biodegradable and environmentally safe chemical air deodorizer to control naphthalene odour emissions. The result was a dramatic reduction in fugitive odour, producing a safer workplace, eliminating complaints from neighbours and allowing the demolition project to avoid long, disruptive periods of downtime.
