VOC and Odour Control

South Dublin County Council, following odour complaints from residents living in the vicinity of their waste transfer station, approached UK specialists Simdean Envirotec to propose a solution.

"The problem was found to be associated with the poor performance of the existing odour control system," says Simdean Managing Director Nick Carter. "This was designed around a biofilter that was not operating efficiently."

To overcome the fault, Simdean designed a system based on reverse jet cartridges to remove any particulates and annular carbon adsorbers to remove the odour from exhaust gases pulled from the waste transfer station's buildings.

Since the commissioning of the Simdean system, no odour complaints have been received from residents. The Simdean solution works automatically and has a fully-monitored SCADA supervisory control system to allow the plant to be operated remotely.

Because of Simdean's in-house fabrication services, installation expertise and extensive design experience, they were able to offer the Council a fully-tailored turnkey service.
