On behalf of United Utilities, KMI commissioned Plasticon Ltd to manufactur and install an odour abatement plant at Burnley wastewater Treatment Works. As part of the contractual requirements, Plasticon were required to demonstrate the equipment’s ability to confirm to the original equipment specifications, as specified by KMI.

Performance Of Test of Odour Assessment

SES was commissioned to complete the odour performance test, which included measurements across the abatement equipment of the following key odour parameters:
