Abstract

This study presents two odour impact assessment methodologies for a new waste management plant. The Online Field Inspection Manager (OFIM) has been used to establish the zero-situation according to the VDI/DIN3940. At the same time, the odour impact was also modelled using Calpuff dispersion modelling.
