Updated: Jun 17

When it comes to sewer odor control, there is no doubt about it, it's stinky business and can be a challenging one to manage at that. Despite your nearest wastewater treatment facility's best efforts, sewer odor control remains to be an ongoing issue.

Within your own communities, wastewater treatment facilities and landfills are facing increased pressures to reduce odor emissions and find better ways to implement sewer odor control. But why is this such an ongoing issue?

Some wastewater treatment facilities implement multi-million-dollar venting systems, which have proven to yield varying results. Because the best solution for sewer odor control isn't to simply mask the odor itself, but rather eliminate it all together.


But how do you implement sewer odor control in a way the eliminates it all together? Great question. The best way to see lasting results is to focus on the science. Research has shown that sewer odor control can be utilized as a biological reactor similar to bioreactors in the wastewater treatment plant.
