Odour conference Sydney December 2012   The inaugural conference on assessment and management of odours and air emissions will be held 4-6 December 2012, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

   Odour and air emissions (including volatile organic compounds, sulfur and nitrogen containing compounds, and greenhouse gases) have the potential to impact the environment and health. The assessment and management of these emissions are a high priority for a wide range of sectors including wastewater treatment, sewerage, solid and trade waste management, agriculture and livestock, and manufacturing. While significant advances have been made in the assessment and management of these emissions, numerous technical and institutional challenges remain.

   On behalf of the UNSW Water Research Centre, we would like to invite you to join us for the inaugural Australian Odour and Emissions (AusOE) Conference. We are proud to have the support of the Australian Water Association (AWA), the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ), and the Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) for this conference.

   This event will provide a national platform for practitioners, managers, and researchers to benefit from cross-industry knowledge transfer through profiling the latest developments in this field, and discussing successful approaches for the assessment and management of odour and air emissions.

   Abstracts are now being accepted. Abstract submission guidelines and template can be viewed on the AusOE website.  

   To be considered for a platform presentation, abstracts must be received by 20 April 2012.

   The Conference sessions will cover the following topics:

Sampling and Assessment:

  • Odour sampling and analysis
  • Greenhouse gas sampling and analysis
  • Sampling and analysis of VOC, sulfur and nitrogen odorants and emissions
  • Sampling techniques for area and volume sources
  • Field assessment of odours


  • Applications of dispersion modelling
  • Dispersion modelling evaluation and quality assurance
  • Inverse dispersion modelling and source identification
  • Alternative emission transport models

Abatement and Management:

  • Odour and gaseous emission control techniques
  • Biological abatement processes
  • Evaluation of odour control products
  • Innovative abatement processes
  • Complaints management and analysis
  • Odour and emissions management as a tool in community relations and compliance
  • Odour regulation and policy

What cookies are used for?

   Cookies are used for adjusting a website’s content to fit a user’s preferences and optimize the website. They store useful information that improve the user’s experience of a website. They are most commonly used for:

  •     Recognizing the type of device a user is browsing with and any preferences applied to optimize the website specifically for the device.
  •     Creating statistics that help website owners to understand how their users interact with their website, which allows them to improve their structure and content.

What types of cookies are used?

Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive for a period of time specified in the cookie’s file parameters or until removed manually. When you return to a website and it requires you to login again despite previously storing your login information, it is usually because the persistent cookie expired; this helps to increase security while maintaining accessibility.

   Session cookies, on the other hand, are used temporarily and expire once the website or browser is closed. They are used to track user activity on a website during a single visit. When a website requires that you verify your age or location once every visit before allowing you to view content and without requiring additional personal details, that is a session cookie at work.
