Identifying and Controlling Odor in the Municipal Wastewater Environment Phase 1: Literature Search and Review
A general review of literature published from 1990 to 2000 and unpublished literature on odors associated with municipal wastewater collection sysytems and treatment facilities, including biosolids handling.
The literature review focused on several areas including odor characterization technology, odor sampling, analysis, measurement technology and odor mitigation (control) technology. Odor literature from the agricultural industry and the industrial wastewtaer arena was also reviewed for technology transfer feasibility. Public perception of odors was also reviewed.
Five databases searched yielded 5,155 abstracts of which 669 articles were retrieved. Gray literature (155 articles) was received by soliciting WEF, AMSA and A&WMA memberships. All literature was reviewed to determine knowledge gaps and identify the most needy and promising areas for field research in Phase 2. The top priority research agenda selected for field research in Phase 2 was “Impacts of In-Plant Operational Parameters on Biosolids Odor Quality”
