Anchovy Fish Processing Odor Case Study
An anchovy fish processor in Baja California, Mexico is located adjacent to an exclusive beach resort. During the fish processing operation, 5,000 liters (1,250 gallons) per day of water is used in a stack misting system designed to control odor emission. Over the years, several odor-masking products have been tried in the misting system in an attempt to reduce offensive odors. However, significant odors still existed. BioWorld Odor Neutralizer was added to the water in the misting system.
The odors were completely eliminated. On-going treatment has controlled the fish odor emanating from the facility. Visitors at the resort have stopped filing complaints.
