Odours’ identification and characterisation; calpuff impact assesment study in the region of La Talaudière (France), the Molina’s industrial area

le .

P05I3   Molina’s industrial area, located in La Talaudiere, (France), has been generated a potential conflict at the residential area located in the surroundings, due to the industrial activity. An odour impact assessment study, managed by the Departmental Direction of Population Protection of La Loire (DDPP), was developed in 2 main areas (1) principal sources identified at the industrial area (2) headspace ambient air at collectors and discharge to sewage networks public system. Results show odour concentration according to EN13725 and Calpuff modelling impact assessment.

   Physicochemical parameters were measured in headspace’s collectors; also, intensity, hedonic tone and molecular characterization were evaluated by GC-TOF-MS. These results allowed to integrate control and monitoring actions at the industries, evaluating results at short and medium term. It should be noted that regular and transparent exchanges with all stakeholders were essential for the success of the project and goal’s achievement.
