Paramount-Nevada Asphalt Company to eliminate plant odor

Paramount-Nevada Asphalt Company is planning to install a regenerative thermal oxidizer to help capture and eliminate the odor issue at its Fernley, Nevada plant.

An ongoing odor issue in Fernley has been raising concerns of many locals, and the city council met to discuss the protocols.

“So, we’re spending a substantial capital contribution to upgrade our facility and more effectively control and vaporize our odors,” said Guy Maher, the marketing manager at Paramount.

Locals have been dealing with the odor since April, and some said they are about to relocate if it doesn’t get fixed soon. 

“Since they started, it was just horrible, you could not be outside. I had grandchildren staying with me at the time, and my one granddaughter would get bloody noses,” said Donna Jerman, a resident.

Paramount hopes to be finished with this project by the end of the year, and it is going to cost them about $1.2 million to complete. 

“We in no way, shape, or form want to negatively impact someone’s quality of life,” said Maher.
