IES Webinar: Odour assessment toolkit

Thursday, 11 February 2021 - 12:30pm to 1:15pm

The presentation will provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art in terms of the techniques and tools available to assist environmental practitioners to assess odour impact for planning, permitting or nuisance investigation purposes. 

The primary factors that influence development of odour impact will first be identified, followed by a description of the techniques that can be applied to assess and evaluate each of these factors, including sensory and chemical odour analysis techniques and dispersion modelling. 

Case studies will then be presented illustrating how the techniques were applied to solve real world odour problems, and forthcoming developments in odour assessment science will be summarised.
