The aim of this conference is to share experiences in the fields of odour regulations, odour abatement techniques, dispersion modelling and new innovative tools to manage the impact of odours in the environment.
Around 60 people gathered for two days in Krakow, Poland to discuss about issues related with odour management. The second International Odour Conference (MKO 2017) just took place last week and the interest shown by the attendants is a sample of the interest in this country to increase the knowledge on managing odours.
The MKO2017 Conference was organized by Ms. Anna Bokowa Director of the Environmental Odour Consulting (EOC) in cooperation with the professor Izabela Sowka from the Wroclaw University of Technology. Both of them are very much involved in a better world with an adequate management of odours, there is no other explanation to organize an event like this. The next Conference will take place in the Polish city of Wroclaw.
Two senior Environment Agency odour experts started with presentations summarising the essentials needed to comply with EA Permitting. During 2 years from 2013 to 2015 of 33000 odour complaints were received about 20000 were from waste related sources. Landfill at 7000, MRF at 5200, composting at 4200 and anaerobic digestion 2800.
This compilation published in 2017 examines the responses of humans to odors at different stages of life, thereby building a foundation for a widely overseen area of research with broader ramifications for human life. The expert international authors and editor align aspects, concepts, methodologies and perspectives from a broad range of different disciplines related to the science of smell. These include chemistry, physiology, psychology, material sciences, technology but also disciplines related to linguistics, culture, art and design.
This handbook, edited by Andrea Buettner with the support of over 60 authors, is an authoritative reference for researchers in the field of odors both in academia and in industry and is also a useful reference for newcomers to the area.
Due to the demand of some authors for extending the deadline for sending the papers, the organizing committee has decided to postpone the deadline until 5th May, Friday.
We have just received a few tens of papers and we invite you to send yours as soon as possible. Later we will send the papers to the scientific committee, who have the task of reviewing them before May 26th.
