BioAir Selected for Odor Control Project in Canada
Company provided EcoFilter products for hydrogen sulfide and ammonia odor control
BioAir Solutions delivered its EcoFilter biotrickling filter technology to a municipal utility facility in Corunna, ON, Canada.
The EcoFilter unit selected for the project in St. Clair Township will handle pump station odors and can treat an airstream up to 1,750 cu meters per hour. The newly installed equipment is scheduled to go into operation in the spring of 2011. EcoFilter utilizes BioAir’s patented EcoBase structured plastic synthetic media, which provides for the controlled mass transfer of odorous compounds.
“BioAir was selected by the municipality because of our ability to meet very stringent odor control requirements with a technology that is efficient and effective,” said Louis le Roux, president of BioAir. “The EcoFilter unit will remove 99% of the hydrogen sulfide and 90% of the ammonia in the airstream, reducing overall odors from the facility by 95%.”
BioAir’s president noted that this was the company’s first project in Canada.
