Game-Changing Odor Control Solutions Reduces Hydrogen Sulfide Emission by Over 95 Percent

Long Grove, IL (PRWEB) - OMI Industries, a worldwide leader in providing natural odor abatement solutions, is officially introducing Ecosorb® 5000S at WEFTEC 2016.

Ecosorb® 5000S is a revolutionary new water-based solution that fights municipal and wastewater treatment odors, while also reducing hydrogen sulfide emissions by over 95 percent.

In addition to reducing emissions from hydrogen sulfide, as well as mercaptans, amines and thioethers, the solution offers strong odor control across a broad spectrum of odorous compounds including acids and bases, and is completely biodegradable.

“Unlike any other offering in the marketplace, Ecosorb® 5000S is a game-changing solution that is transforming how municipal and wastewater treatment plants fight both odor and emissions,” said Brian McLaughlin, Director of Industrial Sales and Marketing, OMI Industries. “This addition to our Ecosorb® family of solutions continues our 25-year track record of industrial odor control leadership and innovation -- providing systems that are environmentally friendly, and eliminate odors without the use of harsh masking agents.”

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), hydrogen sulfide emissions can be toxic at even the lowest levels, with concentrations of 100 ppm or greater being “immediately dangerous to life and health.” Ecosorb® 5000S meets all OSHA standards for safe odor mitigation and hydrogen sulfide emission reduction.

Much like other solutions in the OMI Ecosorb® family, Ecosorb® 5000S is safe to spray or air atomize in the open air around employees. Comprised of a blend of plant oils, food grade surfactants, and purified water, Ecosorb® 5000S can be diluted with water or used neat depending on application and delivery equipment to remove odorous compounds including acids and bases.

To learn more about Ecosorb® 5000S, please listen to our recent podcast with Dr. Laura Haupert, Director of Research and Development for OMI Industries, here.

In addition to Ecosorb® 5000S, OMI Industries is exhibiting its full-line of eco-friendly odor management solutions and equipment at WEFTEC 2015 in booth #2009.
