Olfasense GmbH (formerly Odournet GmbH) is organizing the workshop “The World of Odour - How Sensory Analysis Affects Consumer Perception” on Thursday, 28 January 2016 in Kiel, Germany.
This workshop aims at a wide range of industrial sectors that are involved in product and material testing, and will provide information on odour evaluation in this area. Besides a number of presentations from odour specialists, and practical sessions on specific odour measurement techniques, participants will get the opportunity to discuss specific questions in round-table sessions
You will get to know about Key Evaluation Methods, Key Parameters, Sampling Methods and more.
The first International Odour Conference (MKO 2016) is being organized by the Environmental Odour Consulting in cooperation with two Polish universities- Gdansk University of Technology and Wroclaw University of Technology. This is an initiative taken by some known experts in this field to talk about the odour management and measurement techniques nowadays. This event will take place in Gdansk, Poland between April 18 and April 20, 2016.
In 2013, we wrote about an Odour Conference hold in Sopot, Poland organized by the Department of Eko Dolina Waste Management Sp. That conference was the first conference in Polish language that dealt with odour issues.
As you probably know, we have organized an International Conference about Odour Management in Bilbao, Spain, not long time ago.
We say "international" cause around 12 countries attended that event, but unfortunately this event was not bilingual (such as the one we did in Chile), but just in Spanish. We apologize for that, and we hope next one is bilingual again.
Saying that, we are very happy to share with you the abstracts of the presentations, and guess what? they are in English!
Biofiltration is the most widely used technique for eliminating odours in waste treatment plants (WTP). Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are among the odorous compounds emitted by WTP, and serve as variables to measure odour emissions depending on the type of aeration process used.
In this work, we assessed the performance and efficiency of an industrial-scale biofilter where composting was the main source of VOCs and odour emissions.

PrOlor is the first commercial software application in the world that is able to forecast an odor incident two days beforehand by using advanced dispersion modeling and odor measurements at the source.
PrOlor tool was used to forecast odor incidents during 10 months in a rendering plant. The results are shown in this article.

Many industries generate strong odors emissions throughout the production process. The subjective nature of odor, together with the difficulties in their diagnosis and search for appropriate solutions, make this study becomes an effective tool for success.
The experience is based on the association of three evaluation criteria applied simultaneously: olfactometric criterion for "identification of the nuisance", dynamic simulation criteria for "visualization of behavior in space" and structural analysis criteria for a "better elimination of causal compounds."

The rendering sector that transforms the animal by-products into grease and protein flour is one of most problematic industry due to the odors generated by the activity process.
For this reason, most of the plants are located in isolated areas far from population and even far from other industries. In this Case Study, the location very near a urban area, required the implementation of a solution.
