Landfills & Compost Treatment Solutions
Landfills and compost sites encounter decomposition odors and complaints which tend to occur more frequently during warmer spring and summer months. This happens due to bacterial breakdown processes becoming more active in higher temperatures. Many sites and facilities are left without options to contain the odors due to an inability to find a safe, cost effective solution that actually works.
Mercaptans are usually the primary source of the odors traveling offsite because of the compound’s extremely low perceivable odor threshold. At several parts per billion, the characteristic rotten egg odors are detectable to the human nose. Many chemical products for these types of odors utilize masking agents, but are only effective for a very short distance because of the masking agent’s relatively HIGH odor threshold. Because of this, masking agent products are often poor choices to control this type of odor.
Other harsh chemicals can be used successfully such as peroxides or permanganates but the odor reduction is short lived and the chemicals are dangerous to store and apply. In the end, using these products cost additional monies to be used safely. However, US EPA approved Planet Breeze offers a safe and proven effective solution for odor control that can be utilized without extreme safety precautions or concerns for product “carry” offsite like with masking agent use.
Planet Breeze eliminates the odor by controlling topical bacterial populations and through oxidizing sulfur containing gases that creep out of the waste/compost. Unlike enzyme products or masking agents, Planet Breeze can be applied in any weather and is not dependent on environmental factors to function properly. When diluted and applied per US EPA recommended rates, the odor neutralizing power is extremely effective and offers a simple solution that you and your facility can count on.

“Planet Breeze has helped us control odors and has reduced the H2S problem we’ve been battling in our wet wells over the years. We are very pleased with this product and the customer service support we received so far from the Planet Breeze team.”
– Mike S., Sewer Collection Systems
"Our facility is immediately upwind of a densely populated residential area. These residents are extremely sensitive to any odors from our facility. Our solids processes have always been a major odor generator and therefore an ongoing public relations issue. Planet Breeze is the most simple, effective product we have found to control these odors. Since we began adding Planet Breeze to our sludge, before dewatering, the reduction of odors has been very dramatic"
- Stan S., Wastewater Treatment
"We have used Planet Breeze to treat our sludge for the past few years. It is a very effective odor control for sludge, which had been a difficult problem for a long time.. We inject the product into our sludge storage tanks as directed, prior to dewatering or polymer addition. With Planet Breeze use, we have significantly reduced odor complaints as well as improved hydrogen cyanide removal from our effluent. D3W Industries works well with my entire team and are knowledgeable and reliable partners."
