Abstract

   In Castilla y León there are many activities in the livestock and agri-food sector that are susceptible to emit annoying odors. There are also other activities that are dedicated to waste management that sometimes generate annoying odors. Regarding livestock activities, the control is carried out by the establishment of set-back distances between the farms and the receptors taking into account the direction of the usual winds, presence or other obstacles, etc. without carrying out controls or further actions.

   Regarding agri-food activities and organic waste management, despite the reluctance of the sector, in some cases, the periodic olfatometric studies have been included that determine the degree of incidence on the population. These studies are determined in the Environmental Impact Assessments that are carried out according to the norm UNE EN 13725 and by companies accredited by ENAC. In addition, controls have been put in the exhaust gases of substances that can give an idea of ​​the emissions of odours by the activities as well as controls of the operation of decontamination equipment.
