2017 is coming to its end and it’s time to look back and remember all the exciting events we organized and attended. It is also time to say a big thank to all the people we are grateful to. But, first of all, we would like to wish all our readers a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018!
One more year, Olores.org has grown beyond our wildest expectations. In terms of readership, this year 2017 we got more than 53 000 page loads, with around 28 000 unique visitors and around 7 000 returning visitors. All this has been possible thanks to your time to reading and supporting us. That's why we want to say THANK YOU!
Envirosuite Limited (from now on, Envirosuite) is pleased to announce that it has just received advice that its conditional bid for the assets of Canadian based 'Odotech Inc' has been accepted by their bank-appointed Trustee.
Odotech is a long-standing environmental technology company that specialises in monitoring and managing odour related issues. Odotech has a significant number of clients across the wastewater, mining, agriculture, and pulp and paper industries, as well as in local government. Odotech offers a vertical hardware and software solution consisting of air quality and odour sensors and a cloud-based visualisation platform.
The company Future Market Insights, is based in Pune, India. This year they have released a report titled ‘Odour Control System Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 – 2016 and Opportunity Assessment 2017 – 2027’ . In this report, they have scrutinised the global odour control system market for a ten-year period ending in 2027. The historical analysis from 2012 to 2016 has been compared and contrasted with the assessment period to present a complete picture of the present and future prospects that await key stakeholders in the odour control system market.
The odour control system market has been studied in in six geographic regions with an equal focus on both emerging and developed economies. Each region has a dedicated section that highlights the drivers, restraints, opportunities, and trends that influence the odour control system market. It is possible to make business decisions with all the data provided in the odour control system market report. Present market size and anticipated future growth of the largest countries in every region is mentioned and is given for the odour control system market in terms of system type, application, and region. An impact analysis of the drivers and restraints along with a market attractiveness index completes this critical section of the odour control system market report.
As you probably know, we have organized an International Conference about Odours and VOCs Management in Valladolid, Spain, some months ago.
We say "international" cause around 13 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! the full article are only available in Spanish for the moment.
Chile is a country that has different industrial activities generating annoying odors for the communities that live in the surroundings. It seeks to determine the area of impact caused by odors, for which measurements are made with suitable panelists (according to the established in the chilean normative NCh3190: 2010).
To determine the area of impact, plume measurements are made in accordance to VDI 3940 part 2. On the other hand, the mathematical model of atmospheric dispersion CALPUFF fed with emissions measured by dynamic olfactometry is applied.
The processing of meat by-products for the production of protein meals entails the generation of gaseous emissions causing annoying odours that cause a severe environmental impact in the surrounding populations.
This work presents the characterization of the main components of the process emissions, the dimensioning of the treatment system and the results of the operation of a rendering plant of turkeys, where fractions, such as viscera, blood, feathers, as well as seizures and discards, are processed to produce flour and oil for animal feed. This plant has a processing capacity of 8 million turkeys per year and a projection of 12 million.

Rice paddy fields are one of the major sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The project LIFE EBRO-ADMICLIM is evaluating the annual pattern of greenhouse emissions in rice paddy fields at the Ebro Delta.
A monthly monitoring of the GHG emission rates in 15 rice fields covering the whole geophysical variability of the Ebro Delta under standard agronomic management was carried out, including both growth and post-harvest (fallow). In addition, hydrological and physico-chemical parameters of the soil and the vegetation cover were also studied.
