Landfill site in Corsica

Site: Landfill site in Corsica

Year: 2023

Odor treatment: following the extension of the site (capacity of 70 000 m3 / 45 000 t of waste per year) for a period of 15 years, we have set up a high pressure spraying ramp 300 m long in order to reduce the impact of the olfactory nuisances on the exploitation.

The odor neutralizing reagent we used is a patented reagent based on natural and synthetic essential oils. It is sprayed at a very low concentration (0.1%) and reduces concentration of the odors generated by the operation.

The installed engineering solution consists of a 316 stainless steel high pressure ramp that feeds 200 spray nozzles. The nozzles are spaced 1.5 m apart and create an odor barrier between the source and the dispersion.

Our engineering solution, controlled by a weather station is autonomous. It starts up only when disturbing winds (in the direction of local residents) blow. This saves water and the odor-neutralizing reagent.
