Abstract

   Currently, it is usual in the operating licenses, that governmental institutions grant to the sites where the sewage and waste are treated, the measures are put in place to control the emissions into the atmosphere. Years ago, the requirements for the combustion equipments were established (boilers, generator powers…), but it is still common to be faced with the requirements limiting the emissions of odours. The quantifying of their impact on the environment is very complex because other factors, intrinsic to the facility and environmental dependent (topography, meteorology) affecting its spread in the area.

   In the case analyzed in the Wastewater Treatment Plant in the district of Pamplona, located at Arazuri, the Olfactometrics Studies have become into a new tool for the environmental management of the facility, which has allowed us to design and evaluate the effectiveness of the measures to minimize the odours over the last decade.
