How an Ohio Landfill Eliminates Nuisance Odors, Saves a Large Revenue Stream and Increases Profits
Neighbors surrounding a southwestern Ohio landfill were outraged by the offensive odors emanating from the site’s sludge processing operations.
The neighbors complained to local and state regulators every time a load of the offending material was delivered for processing.
The site had to do something otherwise they were going to lose the lucrative sludge disposal contract.
Eliminate the odors, save the contract and maintain profitability.
The landfill’s internal odor experts suggested that the landfill operator contact Benzaco Scientific and enlist their aid to remedy the odor issue.
The Benzaco team visited the facility, surveyed the operations, interviewed operating personnel and received an MSDS for the material in question.
Based on these factors, the treatment plan was recommended and a trial began immediately with representatives from the local regulatory commission, the EPA and the hauling company on hand.
The odor is gone!
Thanks to a motivated landfill staff and inventive engineering for application from the Benzaco Scientific team, the odors have been eliminated.
The landfill is now accepting up to six loads a day of sludge generating a high income stream.
