Program of OLORES19 odour management Conference is now available!

programaOLORES19   We are glad to share with you that the preliminary Program of OLORES19, the V International Conference on Odour and VOCs Management in the Environment, that will take place this November in Santiago (Chile) is now available. We will be updating the program including some more information of our sponsors and some extra helpful information for the attendees.

   This is an excellent opportunity to meet with experts, industries and regulators, to discuss about better ways to manage odours. We have 110 registrations already made, 2 months before the event has commenced, so we are getting at a steady pace to our goal of 250 attendees. Check the preliminary program here.


   If you are the author of an oral presentation or if you are an attendee, you can check the provisional schedule of the presentations.
