Challenge

To study and characterize the substances involved in the generation of odours in each of the treatment stages of a WWTP in order to determine the most appropriate treatment system according to the group of substances involved.

Solution

Study and characterization of the substances involved in the generation of odours in each of the treatment stages of an industrial WWTP, comparing, in addition, the different measurement and treatment technologies of odours and develping an own methodology that allows a rapid diagnosis and the establishment of optimal advanced control tools in deodorization systems.
