on . . Hits: 824

FENAVI2018   Cyntia Izquierdo, co-editor of this website and member of the International Environmental Association of Odour Managers (AMIGO), gave a 1-day course on Odour management to the Colombian Poultry Federation (FENAVI) the 4th of September 2018. This Colombian association was celebrating its biannual conference and, among the many activities planned, the only course scheduled was this one about odour management.

   The members of this important association are facing new challenges after the approval of the recent Resolution 1541 that regulates the odour emission in many activities in Colombia. They also invited to the event to the editor of this website and president of AMIGO, Mr. Carlos Nietzsche Díaz, to talk about the approaches taken to regulate the odour impact of poultry production units in other countries during the Conference, held in Bucaramanga, Colombia, from the 5th to the 7th of September 2018.

   The 1-day course consisted of several modules dealing with odour management. Around 70 people signed in for this course and listened to the many concepts involved when dealing with an odour impact with special focus on the poultry and other livestock production units. During this course, Ms. Izquierdo presented some different tools available to evaluate the odour emission of poultry farms. The audience was formed by Environmental technicians, farmers and people interested in the new Colombian regulation on odours who participated with great interest in this course and who were part of several interesting discussions held during this 1-day course.

   The Congresses organized by the Federation of Poultry Farmers of Colombia are usually quite lively. In this year over 2000 people attended the event, which gives an idea of the success of these biennial events. The newly assigned Minister of Agriculture of Colombia (and former president of FENAVI) participated in the inauguration of the event. Each talk held at the impressive conference room was followed by over 1000 people.
