A large number of complaints from citizens today are caused by odour. This creates the need to measure odour and to determine and assess the impact on neighbours. In some countries, methods for odour measurement at the source and also in the impact area were already developed in the 1980s.
In the meantime, the findings have been incorporated into European standards, so that odour measurement has been standardised in Europe.
The lecture will guide you through the requirements of odour measurement, the possibilities of odour prediction and the evaluation of nuisance to a company with attentive odour management for a considerate coexistence of company and neighbours.
