Primozone delivers super-efficient ozone generator to odor control project at biodiesel plant in Lithuania.

Press release   •   Dec 11, 2012 09:47 UTC

Swedish ozone generator supplier Primozone has been selected to provide an ozone generator for an odor control project at the Mestilla biodiesel plant in Lithuania.

The Mestilla biogas plant is an environmentally friendly producer of biodiesel. The biodiesel is produced from rapeseed oil and during the process of pressing the oil a distinctive smell of hydrogen sulfide is formed. This distinctive smell is a nuisance to the neighborhood as the plant is situated in a densely populated area in the port of Klaipeda.

Primozone has, together with Mestilla, created a compact solution that can be fitted into the existing premises. A minimum amount of ozone is blended into the plant’s exhaust, which is diverted into a new reaction chamber where the odor is eliminated.

The ozone generator has spare upgrade capacity if Mestilla would want to increase plant production in the future without replacing their odor control system.

Using ozone in industrial air applications is a cost efficient chemical-free solution.

The majority shareholder in Mestilla is Linas Agro Group AB and 49% of the shares are owned by Statoil.

About ozone and ozone generation

Ozone is a naturally produced gas, essentially made up by oxygen. Oxidation by ozone is one of the most effective water treatment processes that exist. It kills microorganisms and cleans, treats, and disinfects water. It can also be used to control the taste, odor and colour of water. Ozone is an unstable gas and is produced on site by ozone generators. Ozone treatment is an environmentally friendly way of treating water, as opposed to chemicals like chlorine.

Interest in and usage of ozone to treat water has increased due to the fact that it is environmentally friendly, very effective (in the light of stricter regulation and more frequent outbursts of harmful bacteria and parasites in drinking water), and due to the availability of more efficient and energy efficient ozone generators like Primozone’s.

Primozone’s solution is based on a patented new way to generate ozone in high concentrations through a very efficient cold plasma process.
