Diagnostic Study of Odors in Industrial Processes and Wastewater Treatment by Combining: Olfactometry - Dynamic Simulation - Analysis of Compounds

on .

sesion06 calzada05   Many industries generate strong odors emissions throughout the production process. The subjective nature of odor, together with the difficulties in their diagnosis and search for appropriate solutions, make this study becomes an effective tool for success. The experience is based on the association of three evaluation criteria applied simultaneously: olfactometric criterion for "identification of the nuisance", dynamic simulation criteria for "visualization of behavior in space" and structural analysis criteria for a "better elimination of causal compounds."

Quality Control of Olfactometers in Accordance with UNE-EN 13725

on .

sesion02 atienza04   Olfactometers and equipment of dilution used in odour laboratories must be calibrated regularly. It is one of the quality requirements of the UNE-EN 13725 standard.

   In this way, Calygas plays an important role as calibration laboratory accredited to the UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard.

Dynamic Olfactometry and GC–TOFMS to Monitor the Efficiency of an Industrial Biofilter

on .

mariadelcarmengutierrez 3   Biofiltration is the most widely used technique for eliminating odours in waste treatment plants (WTP). Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are among the odorous compounds emitted by WTP, and serve as variables to measure odour emissions depending on the type of aeration process used.

   In this work, the performance and efficiency of an industrial-scale biofilter was assessed where composting was the main source of VOCs and odour emissions.
