WasteExpo 2017: Defending Against Odor Nuisance Complaints in Landfills

Next week, a wide-range of professionals from government, waste services companies, composting providers, engineering firms, and landfills, will be convening in New Orleans at the most significant event for the waste management and recycling industry, WasteExpo 2017.

Over the years, WasteExpo has become the industry-defining event for advancing innovations, tacking key issues and networking in this important sector. This year, one of the core challenges that will be addressed is managing odor issues in landfills.

In addition to showcasing its full line of eco-friendly odor eliminating solutions at the conference, OMI Industries will be playing a key part in the education component of the conference. Dr. Laura Haupert, Director, Research & Development at OMI Industries, will be presenting, “Odor and Landfills: Investigating, Responding To and Defending Against Odor Nuisance Complaints,” on May 10th at 10:30 a.m. in Room #357.

Dr. Haupert will be joined by a number of renowned experts in the field, including:

James Walsh, President & CEO, SCS Engineers

Thomas Rappolt, Office Director & Vice President, SCS Engineers

Kendra, Partner, Sherman, Squire Patton & Boggs (Moderator)

Discussions will address how landfill management can best contend with odor complaints, which can all too easily be elevated to the media, regulators and even local legislators. Key takeaways from the presentation will include best practices in odor control, as well as proactive measures for implementing the safest and most effective odor control solutions in order to avoid residential complaints.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn about how you can tackle the most significant odor challenges from these top industry experts!

Along this same theme, Waste360 recently ran an in-depth article about “new odor management weapons” for landfill owners and operators. The article highlighted OMI Industries’ Ecosorb® technology, a blend of plant oils and water, can be sprayed in the air, forming droplets that attract and absorb airborne odor molecules.

With this process, the environmentally friendly solution completely eliminates odors without the use of harsh or hazardous chemicals, expensive emission control systems or masking fragrances.

As always, being a good neighbor is paramount for any landfill, and this will be a key educational theme at WasteExpo 2017.
