Tobacco processing emissions

Odour is an inevitable by-product of tobacco manufacture. The processing of tobacco leaf involves humidification, followed by roasting and drying, and so requires large volumes of air. And, because the tobacco is propelled pneumatically, the process also involves the release of significant quantities of odorous vapours.

  • identify potential sources of odour emissions
  • model and assess their likely impact
  • identify the best possible odour mitigation solutions, drawing on a wide range of odour control techniques.

All of these services – and many more – are available to support your tobacco manufacturing activities, whatever your particular odour issue or specific requirements.
