”Green” solutions for today’s challenges

  • Municipal composting – Our latest installation is an odour control system for eliminating odour emissions from a 180,000 tonne per year composting facility processing kerbside collected food and green waste materials for composting for a major metropolitan city.

  • Cleaning of biogas fuels – The issue of tars present in biogas is the Achilles heel for the wider adoption of biogas as an energy from waste solution. The issue is that the tars condense in the generating engines fed with the biogas fuel causing fouling. ERG’s V-tex™ scrubber has been installed at several biogas plants for use in removing tars and particulates from biogases, thereby increasing the efficiency of the biogas plants significantly. V-tex™ can also remove sulphurous compounds and VOCs from biofuels generated from anaerobic digestion processes.
  • Water regenerable carbon in wastewater treatment – The use of water regenerable carbon instead of traditional carbon as the filtration medium can extend the lifetime of the filter material eight-fold between replenishments, giving operating cost savings as wells as reduced carbon consumption. This system is particularly suited to warmer climates and is operational in the Middle East.

Other ERG services



Odour control and air pollution control can be achieved in many ways but choosing the optimum solution demands a significant in-depth understanding of a broad range of factors. Many leading organisations, both end users and contractors, draw on our 30 years of expertise to advise best practice approaches for their particular challenges.


Odour dispersion modelling

Our odour dispersion reports supply all the calculations and assessments required during the planning and design stages of a project. We also offer our expert advice on process requirements.


Odour mapping

For clients with an existing facility, ERG offers an odour mapping service to determine the most significant sources of odour. Armed with this knowledge, a structured approach to combating emissions can be developed, and a properly optimised, site-wide, odour management plan can be proposed.  

When odour control equipment is installed, this can be targeted to the most odorous parts of the site first, maximising the return from the capital outlay, improving the site's working environment and reducing the odour at the site boundary, and with it, odour complaints from neighbours.


Pilot Trials

For existing polluting processes, it is often helpful to carry out a pilot trail to establish the feasibility of treating the odour or air pollution using the proposed system prior to committing the capital investment for a full scale process.   

ERG has pilot plants available offering a complete range of pilot trial options. These include V-tex™ scrubbers of different sizes and materials, packed bed scrubber, venturi/quench and dry media (activated carbon and oxidizing media) systems.
