Enzyme-Bioaerosol treatment of nuisance mal-odors has an inherent advantage over competitive systems
Until recently, bioaerosols had a negative connotation, being associated with a variety of health problems from pathogenic organisms and other human irritants. Over the past several years, human and environmentally friendly enzyme-bioaerosols have been created and employed to treat mal-odor emissions problems from waste water collection and treatment systems, solid waste landfills and transfer stations, rendering plants, composting facilities and a variety of other industrial and manufacturing operations.
Enzyme-Bioaerosol treatment of nuisance mal-odors has an inherent advantage over competitive systems such as masking agents and chemical neutralizers. Enzymes are biological catalysts that can react thousands of times over and over again. Masking agents and chemical neutralizers are consumed on a molecule-by-molecule basis in treating mal-odors. Accordingly, even though enzymes are more costly on a per pound or gallon basis, they provide more "bang-for-the-buck" on a performance basis and their use results in lower operating cost for effective treatment.
