Air quality monitoring to establish and / or discard the origin of Quintero odor events

włącz .

P05I3   In Quintero Bay, an important industrial complex is located. Between August and September of 2018, air pollution events associated with odors occurred in the city of Quintero, resulting in intoxication of hundreds of people.

   To try to clarify the origin of these events, an air quality monitoring campaign was carried out in one of the companies of the industrial complex (ENAP Terminal Quintero), in addition to the chemical speciation of the fugitive emissions existing in the Quintero Terminal ENAP. The air quality monitoring was performed using an equipment to an EPAS HIM 6000 HAZ SCANNER, Environmental Devices Corporation, USA, capable of measuring the concentration of twelve contaminants including HTC and VOCs, while the chemical speciation was performed using a TORION T9 portable GC / MS, Perkin Elmer, USA.

meeting WG41 Delft

   WG41 of CEN is having today its second day of meetings to try to deliver a new standard on Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS). The meeting is taking place in Delft and a few representatives from Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, France and Spain are at this moment discussing the final details to deliver the draft of this standard, hopefully by 2020.

   Technical groups 1/2, 3 and 5 are proposing new drafts that will be discussed during this meeting. This is the last meeting of 2019 that has been quite intensive in terms of work and number of meetings. 5 meetings took place in Antwerp, Milan, Bilbao, Barcelona and Delft only in this year.

WG41meeting barcelona   WG41 is having an intensive year 2019 as more meetings than usual are happening this year. Last one took place in Barcelona, Spain only two months after the WG41 meeting in Bilbao, Spain. 12 experts from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain sat to discuss issues related to the use of Instrumental Odour Monitoring Systems (IOMS).

   Some very important issues were discussed during the meeting. One of them related to the Quality Assurance Levels (QAL) of the IOMS, to be precise with the QAL1. It seems that there will not be a specific group dealing with a procedure to demonstrate that the IOMS is suitable for the intended purpose before installation.
