    Enviro-Chem™ has been used successfully for more than 12 years in Europe and in the USA in a large variety of applications


Odour prevention and odour control are among of the most significant challenges facing many industries: pressure from local communities is becoming more and more intense and legislation is evolving rapidly.

Nearly all the so called “odour removers” currently on the market are nothing more than masking agents. These simply cover-up the offensive smell and replace it temporarily with a different odour.

POCA Technology

Sargo’s POCA technology Preventive Odour Control Agents is entirely different. It actually removes odours by chemically altering their volatile emissions to reduce the levels of nitrogen and sulphur compounds that cause the odours. The result is that hydrogen sulfide (H2S) will NOT be formed.

In addition to eliminating existing odours, the POCA technology also prevents the creation of new odours by stabilizing ongoing decomposition processes.

Proven Results

Enviro-Chem™ has been used successfully for more than 12 years in Europe and in the USA in a large variety of applications: waste water stations, landfills, composting facilities, waste containers, sewage systems, etc. In each case, Enviro-Chem™ has permanently eliminated the toughest odours.

In addition to its superior effectiveness, Enviro-Chem™ products are safe and proven to be friendly for the environment, by suppressing smelly and dangerous gases, such as hydrogen sulphide.

Other advantages of the POCA technology include its: (a) ease of use, (b) low cost, and (c) environmentally-safe composition. A number of successful, on-location tests have been conducted with the POCA technology in a wide variety of uses. To date, the products have been proven to effectively control odour in sewage sludge disposal locations, landfills (general control, leachate treatment, etc.), transfer stations, truck wash locations, composting facilities, etc
