Wastewater Forcemain Odor Treatment

Author: Michael Kuznetz

This course provides an introduction to odor treatment at wastewater treatment facilities. It describes the most common compounds, namely hydrogen sulfate H2S, contributing to corrosion of and the smell emanating from sewer collections systems. It also presents a detailed description and analysis of the most common H2S mitigation technologies.

The course material will be beneficial to civil, environmental and chemical engineers involved in sewer system and wastewater treatment process design, evaluation and odor control. The skills acquired can be successfully used by engineers involved in both the public and private sector projects since H2S and other reduced sulfur compounds are found in various processes. Students are assumed to possess general knowledge of inorganic aquatic chemistry and fluid motion principles.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Compounds contributing to odor in sewer collection systems
  • H2S corrosion process
  • H2S mitigation technologies
  • Pros and cons of these technologies
  • Chemical and gas dosing rates
  • Technology selection criteria
  • Approximate project budget
