Municipal Waste Odour Control

ERG is the UK’s leading supplier of Odour Control Systems to the Waste Industry

ERG is an experienced Odour Control supplier, providing cost-effective solutions to the Waste Industry for more than 20 years.

Cost-effective odour control systems

Our bespoke packages are designed for your site’s specific requirements to give efficient, safe and simple odour control – minimising nuisance odours for your staff, neighbours and customers.

We can offer you an Odour Control System tailored to your needs whether you operate a Municipal Waste or Food Waste site – treating odours from waste intake halls, sorting and compaction processes, transfer stations, composting and anaerobic digestion plants.

Typical systems located in urban areas include:

  • Building and LEV (Local Exhaust Ventillation) ductwork
  • Dust filter to protect the downstream equipment from accumalated dust
  • Extraction fan
  • Polishing carbon filter and discharge stack
  • And may also include a biofilter or chemical scrubber

Typical odour concentrations at the stack are 1,000 ouE/m3, rising to 3,000 ouE/m3 for highly odorous operations with tall discharge stacks to aid dispersion.

Less sensitive locations may have a simpler approach due to a less stringent odour discharge standard.

In all cases, ERG recommends the fan is variable speed to allow power saving during nights and at weekends when the site is not operating. Read about how this approach saves Guernsey’s government over £50,000 a year.

Optioneering and FEED (Front End Engineering Design) Contracts

Existing waste sites are often under pressure to expand capacity and reduce their odour impact on new or established neighbours.

ERG can help with defining the available options for upgrading existing assets and the preliminary engineering to allow formal project budgets to be set or released for implementation. We provide competitively priced design work carried out by our team of graduate and chartered engineers. In each case, the design output and consultancy fee is tailored to meet the needs of the project – typical deliverables include:

  • Engineering review and testing of the current system
  • Summary report identifying the available options for reusing/upgrading odour control assets versus providing new OCU(s)
  • Details of the technical and construction pros and cons of each option
  • Indicative CapEx and OpEx costings for major options
  • Preliminary engineering design for selected option – input to the formal project specification

All design and build contracts include a complete set of design deliverables as standard.
