Ecolab to stop stench

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

A STINK stopper will be applied to mask the stench at the dhal dump in Walu Bay.

Flour Mills of Fiji project manager Jim Taniela said they hired Ecolab to conduct environment management at the site on Bounty Road.

A silo carrying 1000 tonnes of peas collapsed at the FMF factory on Leonidas Street last month and the company disposed of the peas.

"The company has done all that is required by the health and environmental department when and after the peas were dumped," he said.

"We have complied with the SCC (Suva City Council) health department's requirements.

"Ecolab has assured that the product they applying will completely destroy the odour if there is any still there. The product is called Actizyme and Stink Stopper. Actizyme is an enzyme that will accelerate the biological action and feed into the odour released bacteria."

Mr Taniela said the stink stopper was an organic odour destroyer.
