Direct cold plasma - the innovative answer to odour control in industrial applications
 
Havard Vetrhus
 
 

Increasingly, food & feed manufacturers are being required to address the issue of release of odour and harmful contaminants into the surrounding community. Local communities, special interest groups and government legislation all bring pressure to factories to minimise real or perceived risks of contamination. There are no universally applied standards for odour or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions, and to provide solutions that fit specific factory needs can be challenging.

 

There is no single solution but understanding the food manufacturers problems certainly helps a great deal. In recent years, there have been numerous changes regarding where production facilities are situated. Factory closures and relocation of manufacturing units has become commonplace. At the same time urban sprawl has resulted in residential areas being built closer to previously remote industrial areas. Another pressure companies face is meeting local environmental needs.

 

Odour abatement equipment also has to meet several requirements, most of which can be fulfilled by non-thermal plasma technology.
