book environmental odour 2022   The usually active open access journal Atmosphere of MDPI, has just published a new interesting book on Environmental Odour edited by Günther Schauberger, Martin Piringer, Chuandong Wu and Jacek Koziel. This book is a reprint of articles previously printed in other special issues, and it is available to download for free here.

    The book, “Environmental Odour”, comprises one review and nine original papers, and it is the follow up of other special editions published in the past, such as this one and this one. For any odour manager interested in staying up to date on this issue, this is a very good starting point.

AMIGO initiatives   At the 39th AMIGO meeting on 6 July 2021 new initiatives were presented.  Among other things, the members agreed to create the AMIGO International Award in recognition of a professional career in the field of odour management or an important development in this field.

The winners of the AMIGO Odour Management Awards will be selected by an international jury of odour management experts and will receive their award during a prestigious ceremony that will take place in Bilbao (Spain) on 26 October 2021,

AMIGO website   The International Environmental Association of Odour Managers, (AMIGO, for its acronym in Spanish) is today officially 3 years old. This is a very active organization with members of several countries dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of the importance of proper odour management.

   Thanks to the collaboration of more than 15 odour experts, and a few tens of reviewers, the AMIGO published last year a free basic Guideline about introduction to odour management (unfortunately only available in Spanish). This guideline has over 200 pages of information on techniques and tools for a better management of the odour impact. AMIGO has been involved in several other activities. Do you want to know more?
