Growing environmental concerns are creating questions regarding the quality of our soil, water we drink, and the air we breathe. Of particular concern to many industries is the prevalence of odour emissions surrounding wastewater facilities, manufacturing plants, treatment facilities, landfills, and other sites where malodorous gasses collect. The odours from these plants are disturbing, not only as a nuisance, but also as an indicator that potentially harmful gases are present.


Companies and utilities that take the first step in implementing safe, effective odour control programs make their concern for the environment known. Effective odour control helps keep you in compliance with increasing government emissions regulations while improving the working and living conditions of employees and residents.




Ecosorb Natural Organic Odour Neutralizer is a broad-spectrum odour neutralizer that has been scientifically formulated and proven to react with odorous gasses. It effectively eliminates or reduces a broad range of organic and inorganic odours (Refer to above figure).


Ecosorb presents distinct advantages over many other odour control technologies, which typically fall short in a number of categories. Many act as mere deodorizers or masking agents, overwhelming one odour with another. Some actually introduce hazardous compounds into the area as they eliminate odours. Many claim to react like Ecosorb, but have no scientific proof showing them to be anything other than masking agent. Many are gas specific, and some simply do not work.


Ecosorb is an excellent odour control solution for a wide variety of industries. Indoors, it can be diluted and applied topically or locally to eliminate malodour in confined areas. Outdoors, it breaks down odours and prevents foul fumes from travelling to surrounding areas.


Ecosorb can be used effectively in water and wastewater treatment plants, landfills, pulp and paper plants, oil refineries, asphalt plants, food processing plants, and many other settings.



Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
Ecosorb was tested against the United States Occupational, Safety, and Health Administration (OSHA) Federal Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 that requires manufacturers to be exact in the presentation of information on MSDSs.


Human Toxicity
An independent laboratory tested Ecosorb for human toxicity against Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Guidelines. In all cases, Ecosorb received the safest possible classification.


Fish Toxicity
Ecosorb was tested for fish toxicity to establish any potential problems from the spillage or use of Ecosorb in an exposed water stream. The United States EPA testing standards listed below prove Ecosorb to be completely non-toxic to marine life:

  • EPA Method 72-2, Daphnia Magna
  • EPA Method 72-1, Fathead Minnow
  • EPA Method 72-1, Rainbow Trout
  • EPA Method 797-1300, Daphnia Magna
  • EPA Method 797-1400, Fathead Minnow
  • EPA Method 797-1400, Rainbow Trout


Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Analysis
Two independent laboratories tested Ecosorb against EPA Method 624 and 8260 to ensure that the use of Ecosorb at a facility does not increase the total VOC output, thereby jeopardizing permit limitations. Both test methods showed there were no VOCs detected.


Gas Testing
Ecosorb was tested via a Gas Chromatograph on a range of gases that are common nuisance odors in industry. Gases tested were hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide, ammonia, ethyl mercaptan, and methyl mercaptan. Ecosorb exhibited a dramatic effect on each of these gases with the most noticeable effects on ammonia, sulphur dioxide, ethyl mercaptan, and methyl mercaptan that were reduced by over 97% on contact.
