Experiences in implementing VDI 3880:2011 German regulations, on odour sampling in Chile

on .

sesion3 vergara01For years it has been questioned how to run an objective measurement and quantification of odours in ambient air. The odour sampling process has particular relevance. We have come a long way to agree upon and establish methodological standards such as the EN 13725:2004 for analysis and the 3880:2011 VDI for sampling odours.

Abstract

    When establishing the framework for a potentially odour emitting activity with a prior history of complaints, it is necessary to objectively evaluate both the measures designed to reduce odour emissions and the limits that will be set for an Integrated Environmental Authorisation. In the case of odour emissions, there are different limits set by different regulations. This article will discuss and analyse the need for limits on odour emissions, using several practical examples.

 

Urban odours: The new challenge

on .

sesion4 recasens01This article presents the highlights of a study carried out in order to determine the odour impact of a Street Cleaning Station located in the city and surrounded by apartments. Therefore, it shows the selection process of the metholodgy that meets the best the goals of the study, the physical and operational characteristics of the plant, the time available and the Budget.

The results of this study show the need of customising the methodology to each Project, taking into account all the issues that can contribute to odour impact generation. Thanks to this project, the company could convince its neighbours and the Administration that no impact was generated, so the presence of the plant was compatible with the apartments in the building.
