Odor Control – Projects

We have a long history of helping customers determine the most economical application of BioWorld Odor Neutralizer. We have completed more than 10,000 projects since 1991.

Projects Map

The BioWorld Odor Neutralizer Technology will eliminate virtually every odor known to mankind if enough product is dispensed into the odor area or added to other materials.

The next challenge is to evaluate the most economical application amounts based on the severity of the odor. We have completed more than 10,000 projects since 1991…

Environmental Cleanup using Green Technology

Examples of a various projects we have completed:

BioWorld Odor Control Top-Ranked in laboratory study by U.S. Forest Service

Our BioWorld Engineering Liquid Optimizer Plus was top-ranked in a study conducted by the U.S. Forest Service of 31 tested odor control products.

The six-week laboratory study, “The Effectiveness of Vault-Toilet Odor-Control Products:  An Update,” by Mechanical Engineer Mark Zavala and Senior Sanitary Engineer Brenda Land, found that the BioWorld odor control product was identified as tested and “did reduce odors” and “seemed to warrant further evaluation.”

The study also found that the BioWorld Liquid Optimizer Plus ranked at the top in two categories, “Products Field Tested,” and “Cost Comparison Summary.”  The study said BioWorld “reduces odor and almost eliminates flies when added to the vault weekly.”  Other products required treatment after “two or three days,” or were effective “only when the vault is pumped and recharged with water.”

The odor control products tested are used for vault toilets typically located in recreation areas such as camping sites and hiking trails.

Odor Neutralizer and Fogger used to Neutralize NH3 Odor –

Ammonia Odor in Box Fiber

Project  #1280

An anhydrous ammonia leak occurred in the freezer warehouse of a Central California food processor.

The cardboard boxes containing the frozen fruit wrapped in plastic became impregnated with an ammonia odor.

Warming the boxes to outgas the ammonia would have rendered the frozen fruit worthless and unmarketable.

A fogger unit containing BioWorld Odor Neutralizer was used on each pallet of boxes removed from the warehouse prior to shipping. 

The ammonia odor was safely eliminated for less than one thousand dollars.

The frozen fruit was sold at regular price, for several hundred thousand dollars.

Chemical Spill Odors in Administrative Offices
Project #2168

An accidental chemical spill took place in a 4-story NASA office complex in Florida. The incident took place on a late Friday afternoon and the building was evacuated. 

The chemical had been safely removed and the Industrial Hygienist had determined that the facility was completely safe to be reoccupied by the workers yet the odor still lingered. 

The building windows and doors were opened to circulate the air but the odor remained. 

The concern was that the employees would object to working in the facility due to perceived health issues. 

The Environmental Health Manager located BioWorld via the Internet, called for information, and requested immediate shipping of the BioWorld Odor Neutralizer (BON) and a fogging unit. 

FedEx delivered the product on Saturday morning. A 5-gallon unit of BON was fogged into the HVAC intake for approximately 2 to 3 hours. The odors were completely mitigated and the facility was in condition to be reoccupied without losing any workdays or lost productivity.

Odors from Fish Vapors Out of Stacks
Project #890

An anchovy fish processor in Baja California, Mexico is located adjacent to an exclusive beach resort. 

During the fish processing operation, 5,000 liters (1,250 gallons) per day of water is used in a stack misting system designed to control odor emission.  Over the years, several odor-masking products have been tried in the misting system in an attempt to reduce offensive odors. However, significant odors still existed. 

BioWorld Odor Neutralizer was added to the water in the misting system and the odors were completely eliminated. On-going treatment has controlled the fish odor emanating from the facility. 

Visitors at the resort have stopped filing complaints.

Composting Odors Minimized
Project #1163

During the grape crushing process at a California winery, the pumice and stems are laid out in windrows for composting.   Wastewater from the winery collects in a sump and is pumped through a linear move irrigation system to irrigate the windrows.  In addition, a spray rig is used to add water to the compost.  

Several products were added to the spray rig in an attempt to help reduce odors, but significant odors still emanated from the compost windrows.  Numerous complaints were received by local regulatory agencies.  

As a result, BioWorld Optimizer Plus was metered into the sump wastewater used for irrigation.  Also, BioWorld Odor Neutralizer was added to the spray rig.  The odors associated with the composting operation were completely eliminated in a few days.  On-going treatment has continued to control odors.

Asphalt Odor Project
Project #3242

Asphalt odors from roofing the building were causing the office staff to be less productive.  Some people were complaining of headaches and stomach aches.

The BON was sprayed into the HVAC intake which dispersed the BioWorld Odor Neutralizer throughout the facility.  The odors were mitigated within an hour and productivity was increased.

The maintenance staff continued to spray the BON until the roofing process was completed.
