Vitelia is a premix feed company that produces and sells healthy and balanced animal feed, to match the needs of chickens, cows, and pigs at every life phase. Vitelia’s main production facility is located on the outskirts of a village. The company has a strong commitment to limit the effects of its activities on the surroundings.
A rise in production capacity resulted in an increased odor emission from the production plant. By order of the city council, the company was forced to reduce its new odor emissions by at least 77%. Likewise, the dedusting system used at that time proved inadequate for the desired reduction in dust emission. The company strived to further reduce both its dust and odor emissions, for which it partnered with ENS.
To achieve the desired odor and dust reduction, large quantities of air needed to be cleaned per hour. ENS installed a Titan air cleaning system: This air purification system uses ENS proprietary positive ionization technology and eliminates the fine dust from up to 30,000 m3 of air per hour. By implementing odor treatment, the odor load in the treated air is also reduced considerably.
The combination of dust particle elimination followed by odor removal is an excellent match, because it is easier to remove odor in clean air devoid of particulate matter. Independent measurements (carried out by Buro Blauw) indicate an odor reduction of 78% and an average dust reduction of 80%.
