   air quality europe report 2015Every year, the Air quality in Europe (AQE) Report presents an updated overview and analysis of air quality in Europe. This year the AQE report edited by the European Environment Agency (EEA) presented the progress towards meeting the requirements of the air quality directives made in 2020. Once again, the AQE report failed short to recognize the odours as a pollutant with a key impact on the air quality in Europe.

   The Air quality in Europe (AQE) report analyses on an annually basis how the concentration of some chemical pollutants affects the air that we breathe in Europe. These chemicals are supposed to have the highest impact on air quality and thus on health. But  where do odours stand here?

preprint worldwide odour regulation2020   The story of thie paper commenced in early 2016. At that time Ms. Anna Bokowa contacted 4 authors with experience on odour management, to write a small summary of odour regulations in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and a few countries of Europe. The Idea was to present this paper at a conference that she was organizing in Gdańsk, Poland. Soon these authors realized that the task was not minor and more European authors were added in order to have a more detailed picture of the odour regulations in this continent. This paper was presented in MKO2016, however, the authors agreed that a more overall view was needed. That is why authors from some other countries with relevant odour regulations in South America, and Asia were added.

   In total, 18 authors from Canada, Spain, USA, Poland, New Zealand, Austria, France, UK, Italy, Chile, Belgium, Colombia, China, Germany, the Netherlands and Japan have had over 50 (virtual) meetings at different daylight zones along 4 years of work. Many passionate discussions have been held along the years and many attempts have been made in order to homogenize the different views and stiles of the writing of the paper, (unsuccessfully, as pointed out by the reviewers ;-). Finally, the last draft was delivered, and now it is being reviews by experts. The preprint is available to everyone here.
