Innovations in Industrial Dust and Odor Control Systems for Recycling Operations
Dust Control for Recycling Operations
Dust suppression is a current challenge in recycling operations. Raised awareness and tighter regulatory standards are both contributing to the recycling industry to find more efficient and cost-effective methods of fugitive particle control. A good dust management plan tackles the problem at its source. Most shredders and crushers have dust suppression technology built into them, but it’s limited to those machines, leaving recycling facility managers to determine the best means for suppressing dust generated once material hits the open air.
Odour control for Recycling Operations
Although common at facilities treating organic material, the issue of odour control is significant across all sectors of the waste industry. Concerns over foul odour emissions are one of the big stumbling blocks in the planning and permitting stages of many waste facilities, while poorly executed odour control regimes can lead to friction with the local community.
Odour control systems need to be considered central to the operation of plants, and be well maintained.
