Vapor-Phase Odor Control for Landfills, MRFs, and other Solid Waste Participants

Report details how fugitive solid waste odors can be reduced or eliminated using the right equipment and a properly formulated deodorizer.

Dear Waste Professional,

While modern landfills are well-engineered facilities designed, operated, and monitored to ensure compliance with federal regulations, fugitive malodors often persist. Incoming waste haulers and naturally produced landfill gas, as well as organic decomposition exposed on the working face, combine to release many different gases such as methane, CO2, ammonia, sulfides, and various other unpleasant odors into the near and often downwind airspace.

This report, prepared by Marc L. Byers, the owner and president of Byers Scientific & Manufacturing—the industry’s most advanced and effective odor control machinery—addresses how advances in odor control technology are helping participants in the waste management and transfer sectors prevent malodorous odors from escaping.

When you read “Vapor-Phase Odor Control for Landfills, MRFs, and other Solid Waste Participants” you will:

  • Discover how managing, controlling, and reducing organic landfill odors require a two-pronged approach
  • Learn how the sense of smell and the olfactory system work (and why it’s important)
  • Understand why deodorization is predicated on physical contact
  • See how properly formulated deodorizers should change the malodor versus simply masking malodors

If any of these questions intrigue you—or if there’s anything about odor control for landfills or MRFs you think you still have to learn—download this report now.

Yours truly,
