Formulated with a unique combination of surfactants, FOREST FRESH will also clean light oils and greases. The industrial strength deodourizer's pine fresh scent will cover even the worst malodours.
H2S Source Control for WastewaterSOURSTOP doesn't just mask odours – it attacks them at the source. It's a safe, effective way to stop the formation of H2S in municipal and industrial wastewater systems. SOURSTOP targets Sulfur Reducing Bacteria (SRB), the source of the foul-smelling H2S, by disrupting the respiration cycle of SRBs. This removes sulfides from your system and prevents H2S from forming.

Frequently Asked Questions About Industrial Odour Control Solutions
If you have questions about industrial odour control solutions, we are here to help. Our FAQ provides answers to commonly asked questions. For additional questions, our industry experts are always available to assist you.
What is Industrial Odour Control, and Why is it Necessary?
Industrial odour control refers to the technologies and chemical odour control solutions used to manage and reduce bad smells from industrial systems and processes. These smells can be harmful to people’s health, affect the daily lives of those living nearby, and hurt the environment. It’s important to have good odour control solutions in place to keep your workplace safe and healthy, and prevent problems and complaints from those living nearby.
How Do Odour Control Solutions Work?Our industrial odour control solutions employ one of three effective methods: masking, scavenging, or targeting odour sources, such as Sulphate Reducing Bacteria (SRB).
- Masking Agents: These substances cover unpleasant odours with a more agreeable scent. However, masking agents are not suitable for situations involving harmful odours, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
- Scavengers: These compounds neutralize foul odours by converting H2S into non-hazardous species. They react with the H2S gas, effectively eliminating the odour.
- Targeting Odour Sources: Many industrial odours, particularly those in wastewater, originate from SRBs. Two distinct odour control solutions target SRBs: Biocides and SourStop. Our Aquaguard 600 series biocides eliminate the bacteria responsible for H2S formation. SourStop fosters the growth of nitrate-reducing and aerobic bacteria, which disrupt the respiration cycle of SRBs and naturally remove sulfides from wastewater.
The appropriate odour control solution depends on your specific process and requirements. In some cases, a combination of these methods may be necessary to achieve optimal odour control.
Which Odour Control Solution is Right for Me?Determining the best odour control solution for your facility requires a thorough evaluation of several factors is required. These include:
- the odour source and composition
- its concentration
- budget and maintenance requirements
- and relevant regulations and standards
