Envirogen to supply compact odour control system for Texas wastewater plant

The Envirogen BT-120 system will utilize the company’s biofiltration technology in a compact biotower configuration to achieve 99% removal of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from exhaust air at the City’s Lilac wastewater lift station.

This will be Envirogen’s third odour control installation in La Feria.

Start-up of the Envirogen unit is scheduled to take place in late summer 2011.

Robert Stark, vice president, South Region for Envirogen, says that the BT-120 system answers the need for high-efficiency odour control in smaller-size applications. “The BT-120 offers the same performance efficiencies and low lifecycle cost as our larger odour control systems with a remarkably compact footprint, allowing the smaller wastewater utility to economically handle high H2S concentrations at low air flow rates in a small area,” said Stark.
