Corodex Industries and Biorem successfully install new Biological Odor Control Unit at DIC
New model features innovative bio-friendly technology that removes harmful air contaminants by using sulfur-reducing bacteria
The DS-191 unit is powered by OCU technology that can eliminate odorous air coming from sources such as wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and lifting stations. Odorous air contains harmful compounds like Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), which can be detrimental not only to human health but also to our ecosystem. It requires zero use of chemicals commonly being added to chemical scrubbers, which eliminates the harmful effect of chemical disposal to the environment; its associated safety risks and lastly, it greatly reduces the plant's operational and maintenance costs. The installed OCU model consists of a double stage of biological scrubber with demister bed, makeup water system and softener. It has a 2,750 cubic meter per hour capacity and robust to treat up to 250 ppmv of H2S. Based on its initial two-week performance results, the model has demonstrated H2S removal efficiency of 99.9 per cent and has undoubtedly proven to be very effective and successful.
"We are very pleased with the initial results posted by the newly installed OCU unit here in International City. This system will play a significant role in environmental safety as it will help eliminate odors, H2S volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). In addition, the OCU unit does not use any chemicals, which translates to major health benefits for the community. We will continue to work with strategic partners like BIOREM as part of our commitment towards the move to save the environment and help preserve its natural resources," said Mahmood Awad, Managing Director, CCG.
