Specialising in the field of odour and air pollution treatment, Odour Services International (OSIL) is committed to developing innovative technologies and lower cost, sustainable solutions. An improvement to take the highly successful biological treatment LavaRok® system to the next level was identified as a strategic requirement for the business. OSIL collaborated with the University to expand the current knowledge base and set up laboratory facilities to develop a new generation of non-chemical systems. The programme has enabled the strategic positioning of OSIL as the UK’s leading odour control specialist, generating a bottom line increase of £1.2 million profit. The advancement also creates the potential for OSIL to design bespoke biofiltration systems, which the market requires to meet specific odour problems.
