Measurement of Odour Concentration of Immissions using a New Field Olfactometer and Markers’ Chemical Analysis, Nose 2014

Assessment of odour in ambient air is a very demanding task: sensorial analysis of field collected samples using dynamic olfactometry according to EN 13725 (2003) is not suitable for ambient air analysis, because the presence of a variable odour background in the field may strongly affect panel response. Field measurement with portable olfactometers seems more effective, but the use of field olfactometers is not regulated in Europe so far, while it is popular in the U.S. and Canada, where several States set limits at the receptor sites or along the perimeter of odour emitting plants, expressed in units of dilution to threshold (D/T)…,Get the article to read more.
