For many companies the most import issue related to air pollution is unpleasant odour. This issue is topical both – for new and old industrial plants. In many cases unpleasant odours are burden for surrounding inhabitants and company has to develop and approve action plan for prevention of odour disturbance.
One of the first steps in such cases is determination of odour concentrations carrying out measurements. The Environmental Research Laboratory carries out odour measurements in accordance with the requirements of the standard LVS EN 13725:2004 “Air quality - Determination of the odour concentration by dynamic olfactometry”. For determination of odour concentrations the laboratory uses olfactometry devices manufactured by the Canadian company Scentroid. Using the results attained using olfactometry, our specialists have carried out assessments of odour disturbance from various companies, as well as have evaluated associated issues on a bigger scale.
