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.

Considerations on Sampling and Measurement of Odours (VDI 3880 & VDI 3885/1) and eNoses

le .

 Odour Emission Capacity  Sampling is an essential and extremely important sub-step in the whole measurement procedure, and can be the most relevant cause for measurement errors. Thus, sampling must strictly follow appropriate standards suited for the respective measurement task.

OdoWatch on Watch for Compost Odours

le .

 

The Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is a unique collection of advanced waste processing and research facilities.  Owned and operated by the city of Edmonton Waste Management Services, the EWMC is an integral part of Edmonton’s sustainable approach to waste management.  The Centre is 233 hectares in size – 25 hectares is devoted to their composting facility, and is the largest of its kind in North America. 

Odotech, a Canadian Company that produces the e-noses, announces the installation of one of their largest OdoWatch systems to date, at the EWMC. The OdoWatch system is designed to track odours from the recycling area, material transfer station and working face of the landfill.

The Edmonton Waste Management Centre, world-renowned for their innovation in waste management, has selected Odotech to help them better understand and efficiently manage, the odours emitted from their site. With greater knowledge about sources of the odours, more effective measures to mitigate those emissions can be developed.
