Abstract

This study describes the odour and compounds formation in different industry sectors. Exposes methods for odour characterization and impact assessment, recommending dynamic olfactometry according to EN-13725 combined with high resolution chemical analysis, dispersion modelling or direct exposure measurements by field inspections (VDI3940). It also raises direct interaction between citizens, administrators and plant operators for managing odour impacts.
