The very active Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ) organized an online webinar on the three new guidances that are about to be released on several aspects of odour management. These three guidances are being developed by EPA Victoria, Australia and on this occasion, the odour expert and EPA Victoria officer Chris Bydder was the one in charge of this talk. This interesting webinar took place last Wednesday, and it was attended by over 50 specialists and consultants in the field.

   Three very interesting guidelines related to odour management are about to be published by the EPA Victoria. A separation distance Guideline, a landfill buffer Guideline and a Guidance for Assessing odour. A couple of days ago, an informative session on these three guidelines took place. Mr Chris Bydder, a well-known odour expert and EPA Victoria officer, explained for 2 hours the different approaches taken to manage odour impact in very different situations.
