The source of the problem was an open drain containing untreated waste/sewerage water which blanketed the whole area with an obnoxious, foul odour. The odours were caused by the presence of hydrogen sulphide gas in methane, which is continuously generated due to the gradual degradation of organic material in the sewerage and the land fill. (Methane, on its own has no odour
and thus, is not considered as a contaminant). This was causing break down of computer systems and servers, disrupting work and resulting in loss of business. To add to the woes, people working in the plush air conditioned HCL office were feeling extremely uncomfortable leading to loss in productivity.

Spray drying is the preferred drying process because of its economy, short drying time, and usefulness when dealing with the fine, rounded particles it produces. Spray drying is a simple process of evaporating the water content of a concentrate using hot air in a closed chamber. Ground coffee beans are first mixed with water to form a concentrate with 75-85% water content and is pressed through an atomizer. As the droplets fall through hot air, water evaporates. Dry crystals of coffee fall to the bottom of the chamber and are collected there.
