Selection criteria for odour abatement technologies have been traditionally economic and based on the flow rate to be treated, odour concentration (or of a certain surrogate such as H2S) and removal efficiency. However, nowadays social and environmental aspects are starting to gain importance.

Odour abatement systems are designed to operate over long periods of time (20-30 years) and under dynamic scenarios and conditions. Therefore, an economic analysis of sensitivity of the operating costs towards different design and operational parameters is crucial.

    Summary

   Odour emissions from intensive livestock activities are currently one of the biggest problems in areas with a high density of livestock compared with the human population density. At the same time, odour emissions make expanding these units of production difficult, and if they are to be maintained or even increased, it will be essential to reduce these emissions. In this context, it is essential to use the best available techniques (BAT), primarily to prevent and reduce the generation of odours through strategies integrated into the process, such as best practices and the drafting and implementation of an Odour Management Plan (OMP). In case of continued discomfort caused by odours, the application of end-of-pipe technology treatment will be necessary. This article presents the most common methodology to assess the impacts of odours from a livestock operation as well as the main strategies and treatment systems aimed at reducing odour emissions and their impact.
