Abstract

   The odor management associated with the operation of the El Rutal Biosolids Management Center has been carried out through different evaluation mechanisms such as: modeling of dispersion of gases and odors before and during the operation of the Center, continuous monitoring of odors, which is perceived by people through their sense of smell; participation of the residents in the city center of Montenegro and Rungue, through a program of community relations and the implementation of a toll-free telephone line where neighbors can report the perception of odor associated with the Center. The continuous analysis of the results delivered by the previously described mechanisms plus the consideration of atmospheric stability indicators (air quality and ventilation factor), allowed to determine episodes in which meteorological factors conditioned rises in the perception of odor concluding in the evaluation and modification of operational slogans in order to minimize the emission of odors.
