  • Odor Control Precautionary measures
    During these composting stages the odor is generated, as precautionary measure the following steps has been taken:-
    • In order to control the odor organic stimulated liquid is sprayed in and around the KCDC plant premises. During the processes of composting, the windrow is shifted for processing. During this process to control the odor created, organic stimulated liquid is sprayed.
    • In order to control the odor already plantation is done all around the boundaries of KCDC plant. Further 1200 plants will be planted at the earliest.
    • During the composting process, in order to control the flies, mosquitoes etc quick bite solution is spread on the floor every day.
    • For Odor control a unique technology called Bio-filter system erected at KCDC plant. The technology is given by Dr. Ajith Haridas, Chief Scientist, CSIR, National Institute for Inter Disciplinary Science and Technology, Trivendrum.

      Under this technology four bio filter suction blowers and 1 fresh blower is installed in the plant.

      Four bio filter suction blowers among these four biofilter suction blowers each bio filter is connected to each processing section. In this biofilter system about 3500mts length of cylindrical ducts are hung to the closed PEB roof, which sucks the odor full gases, dust particles through blowers and passes same through the biofilter media in presence of microbes where biological activity takes place and removes the odor air.

      Fresh air bio filter blower: - KCDC is following aerobic composting method where decomposition of MSW takes place in presence of air. As the PEB shed is completely air tighten the fresh air blower blows the fresh air to the PEB shed for the windrow decomposition and air circulation. Please see Report(click here)
