Abstract This study was undertaken to identify typical odor causing substances and evaluate selected conventional methods for controlling or eliminating these substances. A styrofoam dome covering a sludge thickener was used to control atmospheric conditions and concentrate odors. Field collected vapor samples were analyzed using gas chromatography techniques. Analyses using both polar and nonpolar column material indicated that the major odor causing compounds were mercaptans and amines. Other compounds which were minor contributors to odor were aldehydes, alcohols, and organic acids. Odor control methods selected for study included air dilution, activated carbon adsorption, and chlorine oxidation. Air dilution using cyclic operation of an exhaust fan was an effective means of odor control when outside atmospheric conditions were conducive to odor dissipation. Passing vapors through activated carbon filters was not completely effective in odor control since a detectable residual odor remained.
