Byers Scientific offers proven and innovative solutions for industrial-scale odor mitigation, data-driven emissions analysis, and scalable Cloud-based technology engineered for a variety of industries.
The origin story
The company’s founder, Marc Byers, was originally introduced to the solid waste world through an unlikely connection with Willie Nelson.
Willie’s long-time bassist, Dan “Bee” Spears, was invested in a composting project in Southern Idaho. After he passed, his one-time bandmate and close friend Skip Denenberg (also a friend of Marc’s) suggested that Marc look into the project. He presented it as a business consulting opportunity. Two years later, Marc founded Byers Scientific & Manufacturing to serve a niche industry segment. The business quickly expanded to many other industries, always focused on innovating the next big thing.
“The one thing that struck me as I began to analyze and understand the solid waste industry was data and science were very much conspicuous in their absence. We set out to create solutions that are not only innovative, scalable and effective but also engineered with the idea of data informing our designs and measuring our successes.” – Marc Byers
Breakthroughs in Odor Mitigation Technology
In 2019, Pacific Environmental Analytics was formed to provide an innovative bottom-up approach to tackling odor from commercial agriculture. Specifically, PEA worked within the cannabis industry to build the first emissions inventory for different strains of cannabis across various phenological stages.
In the past few years, the names have changed but the goal has stayed the same: to deliver a seamless end-to-end odor mitigation solution. Pacific Environmental Analytics (now Byers Emissions Analysis), Byers Scientific & Manufacturing (now Byers Mitigation Technologies), and the newest division, Byers Intelligent Systems, provide three powerful solutions under one roof—Byers Scientific.
As community complaints of odor from various industrial operations rise across the country, our industry-leading scientists—Dr. Alex Guenther and Dr. Will Vizuete—are at the forefront of research and development finding answers. They’re rising to the challenge of creating best-in-class mitigation solutions to some of the most pressing odor and emissions issues our world faces.
The odor mitigation process begins with developing a scientific and mathematical approach to quantifying odor coming from emissions at industrial sites. Byers Emissions Analysis offers data-driven and engineered technologies for effective, large-scale odor control. Our efforts include collaborating with businesses to develop a robust odor mitigation plan that deploys the best available technology for informing compliance preparedness with air quality and odor. We help solid waste facilities, commercial cannabis, industrial-scale composting, and wastewater treatment centers prepare for and resolve their site-specific odor issues with data and technology to efficiently, effectively, and sustainably combat odor.
