A new European Standard for e-noses?

le .

enose   A new proposal for a European Norm about electronic air monitoring of odorants with the so-called electronic noses (or e-noses) have been recently filled. The 18th of December, the European Committee for Standardization sent a letter to all the people involved in the Technical Committee  dealing with Air Quality to comment on the adoption of a proposal with the tentative name "prEN xxxxx Air quality – Continuous instrumental odorant monitoring in air to assess risks of odour (nuisance) and safety".

    This new work item proposal "Electronic nose" will be based on the Dutch Norm NTA 9055:2012 Air quality - Electronic air monitoring - Odour (nuisance) and safety (Luchtkwaliteit - Elektronische luchtmonitoring - Geur(overlast) en veiligheid).

Everett/Marysville Regional Odor Monitoring Project

le .

 Regional odor project  The Everett – Marysville area has a complex olfactory landscape. Several industrial and municipal activities located nearby generate odors that could, in some operational and meteorological circumstances, be perceived by the surrounding communities. Amongst the sources of odor generation, there are a number of contributors including: a composting plant, top soil facility, a wood yard and chip processing, landfill and 3 WWTP.

   Many of these odors have similar character. To better understand how the odors are being produced and the best ways to reduce them, the Local Air Agency started an odor monitoring project in the area.

Considerations on Sampling and Measurement of Odours (VDI 3880 & VDI 3885/1) and eNoses

le .

 Odour Emission Capacity  Sampling is an essential and extremely important sub-step in the whole measurement procedure, and can be the most relevant cause for measurement errors. Thus, sampling must strictly follow appropriate standards suited for the respective measurement task.
