If there is one thing that is ALWAYS consistent with EM-1®, it is its ability to control odors. The application rate varies according to how bad the odor is and what is being treated. As a rule of thumb, we generally will start with a 100:1 application of water to EM-1®. If this rate was not able to control the odor, another application may be necessary.
Some examples of what odors can be easily eliminated are:
- Crime Scenes
Hydrogen Sulfide Reduction, Mercaptans, Ammonia.
EM America provides clients with specifically targeted applications utilizing the power of EM Technology®. With that, we are able to dramatically reduce odors, such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide at any point within thecollection and treatment system. With consistent and targeted applications of EM-1® Waste Treatment, it is possible to prevent the production of H2S in lift-stations and collection systems by the exclusion of the putrefactive pathogens and free radicals.
The areas of greatest odor complaint conditions include lift stations, areas of low flow, the head-works, anaerobic digesters and press. Properly timed and targeted applications of EM-1® Waste Treatment will remove odors within the system in these worse case scenarios.
Drops in H2S from 800ppm to 2ppm have been measured within minutes of applications.
EM-1® is used for odor control in a variety of industries including wastewater, solid wastes, composting, industrial cleaning, hazmat cleanup, and the like.
