Wastewater, Biosolids & Sludge Treatment Solutions
The activated sludge treatment process often presents difficult challenges for workers and nearby residents of wastewater treatment facilities. For many activated sludge plants, odors become more noticeable during the dewatering process, especially where sludge solids are stored prior to being transported. One of the more difficult and costly challenges are dealing with stubborn odors that tend to accumulate and travel offsite.
Planet Breeze is dosed at US EPA approved rates into the sludge feed lines prior to pressing and polymer additions. From there Planet Breeze targets sulfate reducing bacteria that plague the facilities biosolids.
RESULT: Cake Solids remained odor free after treatment. Providing a safer work environment, reduced H2S reduced mercaptan outputs, and community partnerships.
Planet Breeze at Work
The Solon water reclamation facility is located in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio and provides wastewater treatment services to the community, processing approximately 5.8MGD. As a good neighbor, the Solon Water Reclamation Department wanted to ensure that H2S and other mercaptan odors wouldn’t impact the community. Solon’s staff, working with Jack Doheny Companies reached out to D3W Industries to help mitigate potential odor issues.
Using a US EPA approved Planet Breeze solution, the product was dosed at a rate of 37.15mg/L into the sludge feed line prior to the belt filter presses, and polymer addition targeting the sulfate reducing bacteria that were plaguing the facility’s biosolids.
The cake solids remained odor free after treatment, saving the workers and surrounding community from the toxic smells. To date, the Solon water reclamation facility has utilized the Planet Breeze solution without having to pay for expensive engineering systems and/or construction to treat the problem. If your facility is battling with biosolid odors and wishes to proactively solve the problem, Planet Breeze can provide the solution.

“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.”

“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.”
