Yara buys Evodor, enhances foul smell control of hydrogen sulphide gas

OSLO, NORWAY: Yara International ASA said it acquired Evodor AB, a Swedish technology company specializing in the vapour phase control of the foul-smelling gas hydrogen sulphide (H2S).

The acquisition will complement it’s established Nutriox business, to develop a broader H2S control portfolio to provide both liquid and vapour phase solutions to sewer network, waste water treatment plant operators as well as industry.

Yara has been pioneering the liquid phase prevention of H2S, a foul smelling toxic gas which often forms in sewers and water treatment systems. H2S’s foul smell is a disturbance to local communities, while its toxicity and corrosiveness make it problematic to the municipalities and businesses operating waste water systems, it said.

Evodor provides vapour phase filtration systems which effectively treat harmful emissions such as H2S. This is achieved through a sustainable concept consisting of its own design, construction, manufacturing, training, service and maintenance of delivered solutions. 

Stockholm, Sweden-based, founded in 2009, Evodor currently has over 100 installed units in operation. It has deep expertise in a range of technologies including scrubbers, carbon filtering, UV filtering and compost filtering.

The Evodor team will continue to work from Stockholm and cooperate closely with their colleagues from the Nutriox sales team across the Nordic region.

“Together, we are even better positioned to help customers around the world achieve their environmental targets in a reliable and cost-effective manner,” said Petter Ostbo, vice-president for gas & industrial applications, Yara.

“Our proven vapour phase systems are a good match for Yara Nutriox’s leading liquid phase offering. We at Evodor see joining Yara as the next step in or development. We are excited about joining the leader in H2S abatement,” said Evodor, founding CEO, Stefan Allerborg.
