Transfer Stations Odor Control Solutions

Odor Control for Transfer Stations

Transfer stations, which are located in or near industrial zones within city limits, pose a unique challenge for operators. They must prevent nuisance odors from drifting into nearby commercial and residential neighborhoods, a necessity in order to meet regulations and avoid fines.

The transfer stations naturally create strong odors from yard waste. Grass clippings, leaves, food scraps, industrial waste, and other organic materials can create putrid odors described as smelling like rotting food and milk.

Additionally, transportation vehicles create gaseous exhaust odors that also present a challenge for transfer station managers. In most transfer stations, the tipping area generates the heaviest offending odors.

Transfer stations are monitored by state, tribal, and local environmental agencies under the EPA and OSHA. Odor pollution and abatement are necessary daily requirements, and persistent violations can lead to daily fines and closures in extreme cases.

Odor-Armor®—The Non-Toxic, All-Natural Odor-Counteracting Solution

Odor-Armor® is a highly concentrated, multi-component blend featuring a combination of odor-neutralizing compounds and naturally occurring microbes that work together to counteract unpleasant odors.

The specialized microbe package includes sulfate-reducing bacteria that can help break down hydrogen sulfide and other organosulfur compounds, including mercaptans and dimethyl sulfide. However, unlike masking agents, which only add to the overall odor intensity, Odor-Armor® offers plant extract neutralizing technology that significantly reduces odors on contact.

Treatment for Transfer Stations

Topical Treatment

Benzaco produces a number of topical formulations that are wet sprayed directly onto piles of standing trash, the tipping floor, leachate collection systems, trucks, roads and scales.

The product range includes powerful contact deodorizers. Our formulations are designed to inhibit the proliferation of odor-causing bacteria to products that encourage beneficial non-odor forming bacteria to out compete the odor forming bacteria.
