RST launches ‘Pongo’ concentrated odour neutraliser and masking agent

May 16, 2018

A new highly concentrated odour neutralising and masking agent called PONGO has been launched to the market by leading Australian environmental management company Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST Solutions).

Formulated to neutralise and permanently eliminate a wide spectrum of odours, PONGO is diluted into water at ultra-low concentrations up to 1:30,000 and applied into the air using a fine water spray misting system to provide an effective, efficient and permanent solution to both simple and complex odours on a range of sites.

The formula is environmentally friendly and bio-degradable with customisable dosage rates, making it suitable for a variety of internal and external sites from waste management facilities and landfill sites to food-processing facilities and abattoirs.

PONGO’s masking agent delivers a natural scent that instantly conceals odours while active molecules work to efficiently and permanently neutralise odorous residue in the air, resulting in a more pleasant environment and lower chemical consumption.

RST Solutions operations and technical director David Handel said PONGO’s two-step odour masking and eliminating system was developed following industry demand for a versatile and effective de- odourising agent.

“We formulated PONGO after identifying the demand for a lasting, effective and non-intrusive de- odourising solution for onsite environmental issues,” he said.

“The result of our research and development is a highly versatile product that can adapt to a variety of internal and external sites, while providing superior odour masking and neutralising efficiencies for both organic and inorganic odours.

“PONGO acts as a two-step system that rapidly disperses a lasting fresh masking aroma as well as effectively and permanently eliminating unpleasant odours from the first application.”

The first step in PONGO’s odour elimination process is to instantly mask the unpleasant smell, which is achieved by introducing a high concentration of natural pleasant odour into the air that the human nose only detects over the unfavourable smell.

Next, atomised PONGO molecules absorb and neutralise the odour-producing compound, effectively nullifying odour producing chemicals in the air providing comprehensive and ongoing odour neutralisation.

“PONGO is an environmentally-safe and biodegradable product that can be effectively implemented on a variety of sites with variable application methods and dosage rates customisable to a site’s unique environmental factors,” Mr Handel said.

“RST Solutions is committed to providing versatile products like PONGO that allow our team to provide a comprehensive solution by tailoring the implementation of each of our products to a site’s specific needs and conditions.”
