Odour Control System Helps with Disposal of Fallen Animals  

Apr 20 2010 Read 1178 Times

Under EU legislation designed to reduce the amount of biodegradable waste disposed as landfill, on-farm burial of fallen livestock has been prohibited.

As part of a programme to meet the new legislation and at the same time provide early-warning testing for BSE, Irish company Maloney Matthews has built a waste transfer station that receives fallen animals and stores them for between 24 – 35 hours. During this period they are tested for BSE and then forwarded to a rendering plant.

The station, in County Sligo, incorporates a carbon adsorber system designed and manufactured by Simdean Envirotec, one of the UK’s leading odour control specialists. The adsorber, which operates with 99% efficiency, is housed in a GRP clad polypropylene construction supported by a hot-dip galvanised steel structure that makes both maintenance and replacement of carbon easy. An exhaust fan is included in the installation together with extraction ducting.

The transfer station is now fully operational. No odour problems whatever have been encountered, BSE testing is on-going and all EU legislation relating to biodegradable waste disposal is being met.

Jim Matthews of Maloney Matthews comments: “Simdean’s approach was completely professional. We were 100% appreciative of their efforts. The efficiency of the adsorber system is exceptional.”
