MSW Dump fire and odour management

There are different types of mechanical Drying technology available, but all are highly advanced & requires high capital cost. Majority of Mechanical drying technology requires excessive external energy, huge space, pollution control equipments, water treatment facility - for drying of MSW.

Methane is highly flammable and can be flared up at ambient temperatures. Due to this, methane catches fire and eventually enflames the surrounding waste, which is potentially flammable matter. This leads to Fire and Smoke Hazards, inciting Public Health and Safety Concerns.

Along with the fire related hazards due to Methanogens some Malodorous compounds are also generated due to chemical reactions and other microbial activity, which is again a reason for public uproar due to the extremely antagonising stench.

Problem at the Core

Microbial Cultures of GRAS microbe contains organic acids, metabolites, organic salts etc. It can dominate local micro flora & fauna in no time. At the same time, it works to activate local dormant beneficial microbial species in the eco-system. NPB GRAS microbe & local beneficial microbe work in tandem to create synergies to take charge of the eco-system & generate temperature as high as 80° cent. This unique action is known as ‘Bio-Drying’.

How Renerzyme can be an effective means to an end of MSW Dump Fire and Odour Management concerns?

Renerzyme is effective in repression of methanation and the resulting fires and smoke on dump sites. Renerzyme has also been recorded effective in waste decomposition and odour control on waste management sites and dump sites. These microbes will assist in supplementing a biochemical pool of beneficial metabolites, offer a newer microflora and newer gas exchange kinetics.

Features of Renerzyme application for MSW

  • It controls foul odour & fly within few hours of applications
  • Maintains acidic pH within 24 hours of application to thwart generation of Methane, ammonia, Hydrogen Sulphide

Means of Application of Renerzyme

1 – 2 % solution of RENERZYME is prepared in water. For this purpose, treated sewage water / seawater also can be used. This above stated activity of Renerzyme and its mode of action was studied at Institute of Chemical Technology (Previously UDCT), Mumbai.
