sesion3 vergara01For years it has been questioned how to run an objective measurement and quantification of odours in ambient air. The odour sampling process has particular relevance. We have come a long way to agree upon and establish methodological standards such as the EN 13725:2004 for analysis and the 3880:2011 VDI for sampling odours.

sesion5 vanharreveld01   In response to odour regulation for solid waste management installations in France a web based tool, called Odourmap, was developed by Odournet to monitor odour impacts using volunteer community field panels, spontaneous resident observations and professional panels.

   This approach is actually (year 2012) being applied at a waste management facility in Angers, France, providing close monitoring of the odour impact. Odourmap allows online recording and displaying of complaints and observations from residents and/or professional panels.

Abstract

This study presents two odour impact assessment methodologies for a new waste management plant. The Online Field Inspection Manager (OFIM) has been used to establish the zero-situation according to the VDI/DIN3940. At the same time, the odour impact was also modelled using Calpuff dispersion modelling.
