Odour monitoring identifies and quantifies the sources, magnitude and characteristics of the different odours present at a particular site. The process informs which odour control measures need to be put in place in different circumstances. For example, it is essential to control and manage odours in environments such as industrial and waste management sites.
Odour Monitoring is measured in accordance with European Standard EN 13725 for dynamic olfactometry which is analysed by presenting the odour in various concentrations to a scientifically selected panel.
The responses from the panel are used to calculate the odour concentrations in European Odour units (OUE/m3).
Analysis of the composition of the air can be made using gas chromatography to identify specific compounds in the sampled air.
The information gathered from odour monitoring can be used to optimise odour controls, comply with regulatory limits, predict and model the impact of the odour and maintain the performance of the odour controls.
In addition to odour monitoring we can help you solve odour issues and write compliant odour management plans.
