Odor / Corrosion

Odor formation and detection is complex, often dependent on an individual’s sensitivity to odor compounds. The goal of a comprehensive odor control plan is to minimize citizen odor complaints while minimizing operation and maintenance costs. APAI has extensive experience in the characterization, evaluation, and control of odors associated with wastewater systems and experience with communicating the odor control effort with the public.

APAI provides odor abatement master planning; biological, adsorption, and chemical treatment system design; emissions measurement and modeling; odor control cover and collection system design; corrosion management planning; field sampling and testing; odor analysis; atmospheric dispersion modeling; pilot testing; performance testing of odor control facilities; and public meeting support and participation.
