Abstract

  One of the biggest sources of complaints for odors in Chile is the facilities for the intensive livestock installations (poultry and pigs), mainly due to their size and sometimes their relative proximity to populated places. This gave rise to the national environmental authority to prioritize these activities when announcing the elaboration of a regulation that would go in the line of establishing the emission limit values. In view of this reality, international standards for the intensive livestock installations are also considered interesting, with the aim of knowing the normative principles and, if possible, determining the main responsibilities of the application and the cases of success. The review considers a classification based on criteria such as: air quality over the receivers in odor units or characteristic compounds, safety distances, emission limit values, among others. The general conclusion of the work is that the different countries have established: guides for the installation of new projects, guides to establish the distances according to the number of animals, to the limits according to the territorial location of the installations. The results have been more successful at the time of regulating the productive activity.
