Jacksonville, Fla., Utility Selects BioAir to Control Odors

The filter units use structured plastic synthetic media to remove hydrogen sulfide and other odor-causing chemicals.

The Buckman Street Water Reclamation Facility operated by JEA in Jacksonville, Fla., will be the site of a new, major odor control project designed and engineered by BioAir Solutions.

The three-part installation of EcoFilter units will remove 99 percent of the hydrogen sulfide and more than 90 percent of the odors from the facility, at residence times of approximately six seconds. The total airflow to be treated at the installation is 34,500 cfm.

The filter units use patented EcoBase structured plastic synthetic media, which provides for the controlled mass transfer of odorous compounds with consistent and reliable long-term performance. The plant is closely surrounded by residences and a railroad/port facility, making air quality and odor control very important.

Units will be installed to handle the airstream from the pre-aeration basin, airflow leaving the biosolids disposal building, and odors associated with a raw sludge storage tank at the facility.

“JEA selected BioAir because of our ability to meet very stringent odor control requirements with a technology that is efficient and effective,” said Louis le Roux, president of BioAir. “The utility is very familiar with our capabilities since they worked with us on the pilot facility that demonstrated the technology we developed to handle wastewater treatment plant and collection system odors.”

JEA's water system serves more than 305,000 water customers and 230,000 sewer customers in Northeast Florida.
