The IV International Conference on Environmental Odour Management organizing committee welcomes your abstracts for oral presentations and posters. The abstract submission period starts nowuntil February 1, 2017.
Can you believe it? 10 years with olores.org! Not many of you will remember the first website written in pure html in 2006. However the seed of olores.org was started well before, in November of 2004, after a conference of the VDI and the IWA that happened in the city of Cologne in Germany. Many things have changed from that time but one didn’t and it is this last article of the year summarizing one year of olores.org in a few lines. But first things first, olores.org would like to wish to all their readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for the next 2017.
One more year we would like to thank to the companies that advertise in this site, as they make possible that this portal exists. At olores.org our primary revenue stream is through the advertisements of the sponsors that you see on our web-site. We depend upon this revenue in order to maintain our operations and continue serving the “odour smelly” communities with news and updates.
The definitive text of the Standard EN 16841 is finally available in the official language versions (English, French and German) and it has been distributed to the CEN/CENELEC members. That means that although it might take a while for the EN standard to be available for purchase in any CEN member website, the process has already started.
This European Standard is based on field inspections and it describes two methods for direct assessment of odours in ambient air making direct use of the effect of odorants on the human sense of smell. This European Standard EN 16841 is divided in two parts, the EN 16841-1:2016 that describes a grid method which uses direct assessment of ambient air by panel members to characterize odour exposure in a defined assessment area and the EN 16841-2:2016 that describes a plume method for determining the extent of the downwind odour plume of a source.
The International Association of Environmental Odour Managers (AMIGO) and the Department of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology of the University of Valladolid is organizing the IV International Conference on environmental Odour Management, the 20-21 of September 2017 in Valladolid, Spain with the help of olores.org and within the frame of the CONSOLIDER NOVEDAR network. Estimation and evaluation of odour emission in the environment usually involves the assessment of several issues, starting with odour emission through estimation, evaluation and impact. The program of the Third Conference of Odour emission in the Environment will issue these topics and current development in this field and will serve as a reference point for the development of further trends. Please note that the official language of this III International Conference will be Spanish.
In our last event in Bilbao, Spain we got 170 people and 10 booths from different companies. The aim of this IV Conference of odours in the Environment in Valladolid is to expand the critical mass of people involved in the management and evaluation of odours, including scientifics, consultancy labs, technicians, regulators, etc. Watch the 2-min video of our last conference here!
This 11th Symposium will be held at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, starting 8:45am Tuesday 14th to 6pm Thursday 16th February 2017 (3 days).
The International Water Association (IWA) Tastes, Odors, and Algal Toxins in Drinking Water Resources and Aquaculture Specialist Group” and “Water Research Center at University of New South Wales” are pleased to announce that the “11th IWA Symposium on Tastes, Odors and Algal Toxins in Water: Occurrence and Control” will be held at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, from Tuesday 14th to Thursday 16th February 2017.
A group of experts will be attending this 1st of December 2016 in Leeds an event about Emissions and Odours Control organized by Aquaenviro. It is now a couple of years since the last event about Best Practice in Odour Control Management that took place the 6th February 2014 in Nottingham.
Nuisance emissions can have a substantial impact upon the quality of peoples’ life especially when it is associated with waste handling and treatment plants, wastewater and sludge treatment plants and the application of materials to land. In the UK, nuisance odours from industrial, trade and business premises are regulated by local councils under the Environment Act 1990 and controlled under H4 guidance.
For this IV International Conference on Environmental Odour Management, we have counted on people with relevant experience in each of the fields in order to increase the quality of the presentations.
The Scientific Committee for this event is formed by a group of more than 40 experts. This list is not closed, so if you want to be part of the scientific committee and you think you are capable of reviewing the papers in any of the areas to be discussed during this Conference, do not hesitate to contact us.
