As per the “Central Pollution Control Board”, out of all various air pollutions, the Odor is the most complex to measure and treat, also is most common & challenging to treat. There are two categories of Odor, one is indoor Odor & the other is outdoor Odor which is exhausted from indoor facilities. The odour from residential & commercial establishments and the industrial manufacturing industry are addressed differently, and different technologies are used to treat it. Depending upon the activity & source, Odor can be inorganic or volatile organic.
Why control Odor :
Indoor Odor or exhaust odours can have an ill effect on an individual's health due to toxic chemicals & microorganisms present in the odorous gases. The continuous presence of Odor in the atmosphere can have serious nuisance value to the people responsible for generating, their stack holders, and adjoining premises. Odor in the atmosphere can have a social, political and legal aspect, so it is essential to treat or control Odor. It is a moral, social duty to treat Odor within the facility, or if air containing Odor is exhausted, it does not become an odor nuisance. If Odor is not appropriately treated, it can become a political or legal issue.
Sources of Odor:
The source of Odor is from residential & commercial establishments or industrial & manufacturing plants. Often, Odor is exhausted with the help of ventilation & in this case, and exhaust air needs to be treated for odor control. If Odor is spread within the facticity, then indoor Odor has to be treated for the safety & comfort of the occupants. Below is the list of diversified odor sources from the residential, commercial & industrial sectors
Different Odor Control Systems & Odor Control Equipment:
Different odor control systems and odor control equipment are available for deodorization of the Odor. Below are some of the odor control techniques used in odour control applications.
Thermal Incinerators for Odor Control
Wet Chemical Scrubbers for Odor Control
Activated Carbon Adsorption
Biofilters for Odor Control
Ultraviolet Ozone Odor Control
Ozone Generators for Odor Control
ECOBOI Generator for Odor Control
There are some advantages & disadvantages of the above-listed odor control equipment. Depending on industries & the application odor control system is selected

An odor control system is a complex way of understanding the present scenario, source from where odor is generated, ventilation design & accordingly design the odor control solution for the client. We at Chemtronics use innovative capture & treat techniques to optimize the performance. For successful result, ozone control design depends on :
1. Literature Review.
2. Data & experience from past installed sites.
3. Diversified experience in the field of Ozone solutions.
4. Stoichiometric mass balance calculations.
5. Site conditions & ventilation design.
