Measurement of odorous compounds with a device based on SPRi Technology

on .

P11Ip   A device developed by Aryballe Technologies (Grenoble – France) and based on Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) imaging was used to measure odorous compounds. One advantages of such a device is to propose a large number of receptors inside the measurement cell.

   This aspect allows a distinction capability that cannot be obtained with classical instruments. Presented results show a strong capacity of distinction of compounds even isomers and a detection limit dependent on the family of compounds and the size of the molecule.

Analysis of citizen complaints filed in the integrated system for processing and attending environmental complaints (SITADA) as an indicator of the odor pollution in Costa Rica

on .

   P48I3Odor emissions are one of the main problems of environmental pollution in the world. Fact that places them as environmental pollutants and consequently, in a public health issue.

   This study presents an analysis of the environmental situation of odors in Costa Rica based on citizen complaints filed through the Integrated System of Environmental Complaints (SITADA), according to the Ministry of Environment and Energy, in order to identify critical areas of odorific pollution.

Study of efficiency of neutralization of odour of process waters with THT

on .


   Dynamic olfactometry studies, based EN 13725 standard, have become the main tool for the assessment and control of odour emission from odorous processes. Neutralization has been widely used in many plants to try to decrease this impact.

   In the present study, different oxidizing agents for odour abatement were applied in a wastewater plant from an industrial process. Dynamic olfactometry have been used to assess the odour efficiency abatement rate of these agents.
