The second draft of the BREF (Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reference Document ) on Intensive Rearing of Poultry and Pigs (IRPP) has been issued on 01/08/2013 and the word "odour" appears 487 times. This is a measure of the importance of the odour management in this BREF. For example, in the recently reviewed and final Draft of the BREF Document for the Production of Pulp, Paper and Board, the word odours appears 148 times.
This is a good opportunity to revise the Draft and send some comments concerning the odour management field, for those of you who are involved in odour regulations. Surprisingly, there is no "odour unit" reference in the final draft of the BREF on the Production of Pulp, Paper and Board (1), therefore there is just a tangential treatment of one of the major problems of these activities.
