There are three major environmental trade fairs in Europe: IFAT in Munich, Pollutec in Lyon and Ecomondo in Rimini. Of these three, the only one that has, so far, opted for a special session on odour is Ecomondo. For several years, the Italian trade fair, Ecomondo, has included specific topics on odour. This year, a full morning of sessions has been scheduled under the title "Odour emissions: from abatement technologies to new control strategies". There is no cheaper place to learn about odour management with a registration fee of only 12 euros per day.

   This year's programme also includes many presentations from relevant groups in the Italian field. Although most of the talks are in Italian, several are in English. The full programme of this Session can be accessed at the following link. The session will be held on 8 November.

   The WEF is organising within its biennial conference on odour management in WWTPs a Special Session on International Approaches to Odour Management. Yesterday there was a meeting of the organising committee. The members discussed various issues. Among them was creating a new International Session for this conference for the first time.

   This session is designed to provide an insight into the state of knowledge outside the US on odour management in WWTPs. Experts interested in participating in this special session can submit their proposal before the deadline (this Monday) here.

The next  WEF Conference on Odors and Air Pollutants 2023 will take place from May 16 to 19, 2023, in Charlotte, NC. This time, the biennial odor conference will be co-located with the WEF Residuals and Biosolids Conference, meaning that both events will benefit from synergies and enrich both communities of experts. 

The Call for Abstracts is just open. In addition, WEF is now accepting also workshop and session proposals. The deadline for all submissions is Thursday, November 3, at 11:59 PM Eastern (UTC -4). The Water Environment Federation holds this conference in cooperation with North Carolina One Water.
