Study case of the impact reduction from offensive odour emissions at the domestic wastewater treatment plant in the municipality of Santa Fe de Antioquia

on .

   P48I3In 2017 complaints of offensive odors were presented in the domestic wastewater treatment plant in a Colombian municipality.

   In order to mitigate the generation of gases which are odor´s precursor and seeking to reduce the perception of odors in the surrounding community, TQI was responsible for complementing the wastewater biological treatment with the application of biocatalytic technologies.

Use of propulsion system to improve atmospheric dispersion in conducted emission sources in a fish oil processing plant

on .

   P48I3The technical recommendations in the design of stacks indicate that the emission at higher height, or a greater exhaust speed gases, decreases the impact in the surroundings. In fact, it is usual increases stack height in problematic sources.

   Taking into account this principle, additional propulsion systems for conducted sources have been designed. This type of technology allows to power the exhaust gases at a high speed, diluting simultaneously with a high flow rate, and minimizing the impact on the environment.

First results of a new Odour Citizen Science Project in Falconara, Italy

on .

 Odornet ARPA  Odor.Net is a real-time monitoring project of olfactory nuisance in the city of Falconara, Italy, launched by ARPA Marche last June, carried out through the use of a simple APP for smartphones and tablets. After 7 months of work, some preliminary results have been presented.

   The "Odor.net" project launched by ARPAM (Agenzia Regionale per la Protezione Ambientale delle Marche) in collaboration with the Region and the Municipality of Falconara Marittima, started on the 22nd of June 2019 and nowadays has 252 registered users on the territory (those who have downloaded the APP), which have reported 1.205 odour issues via this app. These results set up this project as one of the interesting citizen science projects related to odours launched in the last months.
