Pulp & Paper Manufacturing Odor Control

Ecosorb safely removes odors from paper production.

Pulp and paper manufacturing is a notorious source of nuisance odors, often stemming from the hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, and sulfur dioxide created during the process. Fortunately, Ecosorb® products offer a natural and effective papermill odor control solution to neutralize these odors and all others associated with the paper and pulp industry.

Kraft pulping uses heat and chemicals to pulp wood chips for making paper. This reaction produces gaseous sulfur compounds called “total reduced sulfur” or TRS gases. The odor associated with TRS gases is often described as “rotten cabbage” or “rotten eggs.”

In addition to kraft pulp mills, odors can come from wastewater treatment, sulfite pulp mills, and landfills. Each of these sources has its own distinct odor. Ecosorb odor eliminators have been used repeatedly by large paper and pulp manufacturers to control odors around on-site black liquor lagoons, primary clarification ponds, and landfills.
