SCENTROID ACADEMY COURSES/English

Welcome to the first training institute focused on odour sampling and analysis 

Scentroid Odour Academy courses provide students with extensive knowledge and practical experience in all aspects of odour sampling, analysis, and mitigation.

OD101- Introduction to Odour Assessment, Mitigation, and Regulation

OD101

Introduction to Odour Assessment, Mitigation, and Regulation

Principles of odour impact are discussed including odour concentration, intensity and hedonic tone. Introductory knowledge of sampling techniques and odour measurement  both in-field and in-laboratory. Bases of odour nuisance laws both in Canada and internationally is covered. Odour abatement technologies and process changes for odour mitigation is explained.

OD202- Sampling Methods & Techniques – Stack & Ambient

OD202

Sampling Methods & Techniques – Stack & Ambient

All aspects of air sampling odour assessment is discussed including area source sampling, stack sampling, and ambient air sampling. Principles of dilution and neat sampling are explained for reduction of condensation and odour degradation is explained. .

OD203- Effective Odour Control Strategies

OD203

Effective Odour Control strategies

Covers all technologies used for odour abatement including Carbon filters, thermal oxidizers, scrubbers, bio-filters, and UV filters. The impact of regulating bodies, cost of implementations, process modification or substitutions in determining the ideal abatement solution is covered.

OD204- Odour Analysis using Field Olfactometery

OD204

Odour Analysis using field olfactometery

This course covered all aspects of odour measurement using field olfactometry. Proper methods of assessing odour emissions from point sources such as stacks is covered. The combination of field olfactometery with other sampling equipment for area sources such as waste piles and liquid surfaces. Challenges and proper technique for measuring active sources such as bio-filters are also discussed in detail. Finally ambient odour assessment using field olfactometery is discussed. Lastly the proper calibration and maintenance of the instrument is also covered.

OD303- Effective Odour Complaint Management

OD303

Effective Odour Complaint Management

This course provides you with extensive knowledge on the best practices and modern technologies used for effective odour complaint management. The focus is on developing methodologies to route odour complaints to the facility instead of the regulator. Students will learn techniques on how to verify, record, and deal with odour complaints. Examples of public relation strategies for complaint reduction are presented, which can be implemented with or without odour abatement technologies. Students will learn to implement a solution of combining field olfactometer and Total Odour Management software (TOMS) to provide real-time visual data on the facilities odour impact as well as to automatically gather, validate and record the odour complaints from the neighboring residents
