Odor Control Projects
We’ve compiled this list of some previous odor control projects to back up our claim: BioWorld® Odor Neutralizer (BON) Technology can eliminate virtually every odor known to mankind — if enough BON is dispensed into the odor area or added to other materials.
The key is knowing how much BON is needed for any particular project. Advanced BioTech has completed more than 10,000 projects since 1991, each time determining the most economical way to solve the problem at the lowest cost.
So, take a look at the variety of odor control projects we’ve tackled, and then give us a call. Whatever the cause, we can take out that odor like it was never even there.

BioWorld Products in the news
BON top-ranked in US Forest Service laboratory study
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.
BON neutralizes NH3 (anhydrous ammonia) odor in box fiber
An anhydrous ammonia leak occurred in the freezer warehouse of a Central California food processor. Cardboard boxes containing frozen fruit wrapped in plastic had become impregnated with an ammonia odor.
They couldn’t warm the boxes to outgas the ammonia, as that would have rendered the frozen fruit worthless and unmarketable. So they called us.
We added BioWorld Odor Neutralizer (BON) to a simple fogger, took the pallets of fruit out of the warehouse, and sprayed each pallet. Once that was done, the odor was gone, and the fruit headed out to market.
Instead of facing a several-hundred-thousand-dollar loss, the food processor spent less than $1,000 to remove the ammonia odor and was able to sell the fruit for regular price.
Chemical spill odors in NASA administrative offices
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.
Fish odors nearly cripple beach resort
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. Ongoing treatments keep the fish odors under control, and visitors at the resort stopped filing complaints.
Composting odors eliminated at California winery
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. BON was added to the spray rig as well. The odors associated with the composting operation were completely eliminated in a few days. Ongoing treatment keeps the odors under control.
Roofers' asphalt odors no longer assault office workers
Asphalt odors from roofing the building were causing the office staff to be less productive. Some people complained of headaches and stomach aches.
BON was sprayed into the HVAC intake, which dispersed it throughout the entire facility. The odors were mitigated within an hour, and workers stopped complaining. Maintenance staff continued to spray BON until the roofing process was completed.
