Laura Capelli Odour Talks   In October 2016 we organized the first Odour Talks. The idea was to select key experts in several fields of odour management and to let them present a work of interest on the subject. To make this experience available to the rest of the world, we did a webcast online of the Talks. Some people subscribed to the webcast sessions and they could do online questions to the speakers. A few months after this experience, we have decided to make the videos available to everyone, so here you have an Odour Talk about the latest findings in the field of area source sampling by Ms Laura Capelli.

   Laura Capelli is assistant professor at the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering “Giulio Natta” of the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Her research activity is related to odour science and engineering, focusing especially on odour sampling, development of electronic noses for environmental air quality monitoring, dispersion modelling and characterization of odour emissions from different industrial activities. She has authored more than 100 papers in international journals and conferences.

The odour level: the key parameter to distinguish odorants abatement from odour abatement

Intensity vs. Odour Concentration

   The terminological distinction between the quantities of stimulus and sensory effect is very important and leaves no room for misinterpretation of olfactometric results. The introduction of the odour level as a link between olfactory stimuli and effects will help to reach this objective.

WG2 lunch break in Barcelona   The 12th meeting of the working group 2 dealing with dynamic olfactometry just took place in Barcelona the 14th and 15th of February and again many decisions were taken that will affect the day by day work of the lab managers and other olfactometric facilities. 

 Mr Van Harreveld welcomed all participants to Barcelona and opened the meeting. The convenor remarked that CEN has implemented a new rule regarding the maximum duration of the preliminary stage of a project: 3 years. If a working group exceeds that time limit the project will automatically be abandoned. This rule will become effective in 2017 and has no retroactive effects.
