Odour management

Odour management is ensured through use of enclosed reception area.


Odour management is reliable and proven for all kinds of organic waste, including processing of household and kerbside waste. Odour management in an Aikan system relies on the following factors:

  • Fully enclosed reception hall.
  • Closed process modules in which nutrients including malodorous compounds are degraded through spraying and percolation.
  • Use of biofilters and scrubbers if and when required.

Aikan has detailed knowledge based on monitoring of odour management from each step of the process. This knowledge is valuable when drafting new plants.
