Abstract

  Odour episodes control due to low threshold perception odorants, as H2S, is extremely difficult, as they are detected in very low concentrations. Low odorants emissions without any health effects can derive in odor episodes, highly dependent on the changeable meteorology.

   Traditionally, pulp mill plants using Kraft process produce TRS (Total Reduced Sulphur) odorants emissions; this is the case of ENCE-Pontevedra plant.

   In this work, PrOlor operational system for odorants atmospheric dispersion forecast is presented, based in WRF/CALMET/CALPUFF models, and applied to prevent sporadic odor episodes around that plant. PrOlor results are being qualitatively validated against a sporadic odor events register based in qualitative observations. During 4 months, PrOlor forecasted most of the sporadic odor events registered.
