Three years of life of the International Environmental Society of Odour Managers (AMIGO )

on .

AMIGO website   The International Environmental Association of Odour Managers, (AMIGO, for its acronym in Spanish) is today officially 3 years old. This is a very active organization with members of several countries dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of the importance of proper odour management.

   Thanks to the collaboration of more than 15 odour experts, and a few tens of reviewers, the AMIGO published last year a free basic Guideline about introduction to odour management (unfortunately only available in Spanish). This guideline has over 200 pages of information on techniques and tools for a better management of the odour impact. AMIGO has been involved in several other activities. Do you want to know more?

Olfactometerinstallation   Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, travelling is specially difficult for the companies these days, but the work must go on. It is therefore important for Olfasense that their clients can put their new equipment like this olfactometer into operation without a company employee on-site.

   For this reason, Olfasense have launched a new and short video showing how to unpack, set up, and put the TO8 evolution olfactometer and TO9 evolution olfactometer into operation quickly.

Ambiente et Odora new owner of Olores.org

on .

aeo2   It has been a while since the inception of olores.org in 2002. That website started as a personal website and grew to become what it is today, a reference portal in many aspects related to odour management. The main editor of this website have been self-employed along these 17 years, but the team involved in editing this website has been slowly growing. A couple of years ago a decision was made of creating a private firm. Now the process is finally over and today we would like to announce that olores.org belongs now to the company Ambiente et Odora.

   Ambiente et Odora. (In short AEO) is born as an optimistic, inclusive and empowering company that delivers environmental services with a special focus on odour management. Ambiente et Odora stands in latin for "everything related to odours" and even though the name is taken from latin language, we are, of course, a global company focused in all key markets including non-latin areas.

What cookies are used for?

   Cookies are used for adjusting a website’s content to fit a user’s preferences and optimize the website. They store useful information that improve the user’s experience of a website. They are most commonly used for:

When a website requires that you verify your age or location once every visit before allowing you to view content and without requiring additional personal details, that is a session cookie at work.
