   The first meeting of the Working Group (WG) 41 that is dealing with the first European standard that will regulate the so-called “e-noses” took place in Antwerp, Belgium the 22nd of October 2015. The name initially given to the standard was "Electronic sensors for odorant monitoring" but this is just a provisional title.

   In January 2015 we published that a new proposal for a European Standard about electronic air monitoring of odorants with the so-called electronic noses (or e-noses) was filled. This WG was hosted inside the Technical Committee 264 on “Air Quality” and the appointed convenor was chosen to be Mr. Anton Philip van Harreveld.

A new European Standard for e-noses?

enose   A new proposal for a European Norm about electronic air monitoring of odorants with the so-called electronic noses (or e-noses) have been recently filled. The 18th of December, the European Committee for Standardization sent a letter to all the people involved in the Technical Committee  dealing with Air Quality to comment on the adoption of a proposal with the tentative name "prEN xxxxx Air quality – Continuous instrumental odorant monitoring in air to assess risks of odour (nuisance) and safety".

    This new work item proposal "Electronic nose" will be based on the Dutch Norm NTA 9055:2012 Air quality - Electronic air monitoring - Odour (nuisance) and safety (Luchtkwaliteit - Elektronische luchtmonitoring - Geur(overlast) en veiligheid).

Everett/Marysville Regional Odor Monitoring Project

le .

 Regional odor project  The Everett – Marysville area has a complex olfactory landscape. Several industrial and municipal activities located nearby generate odors that could, in some operational and meteorological circumstances, be perceived by the surrounding communities. Amongst the sources of odor generation, there are a number of contributors including: a composting plant, top soil facility, a wood yard and chip processing, landfill and 3 WWTP.

   Many of these odors have similar character. To better understand how the odors are being produced and the best ways to reduce them, the Local Air Agency started an odor monitoring project in the area.
