Customer is an environmentally friendly producer of biodiesel. The biodiesel is produced from vegetable (canola) oil and during the process of pressing the oil a distinctive smell of hydrogen sulfide is formed. This distinctive smell is a nuisance to the neighbourhood as the plant is situated in a densely populated area in the port of Klaipeda, Lithuania.
At the plant, they had problems with the biodiesel odour from hydrogen sulfide and made a thorough investigation into how to solve the problem. The result showed that ozone provided the most efficient solution.
Other methods like scrubbers and bio-filters were also evaluated. The scrubbers proved not to solve the problem while the bio-filters were both less efficient and more expensive than ozone.
Primozone created, together with customer, a compact ozone solution that could be fitted into the existing premises. A minimum amount of ozone is blended into the plant’s exhaust. The exhaust is then diverted into a reaction chamber where the odour particles are degraded.
