Odour Assessment Methodology For Petrochemical Industry

Odour Assessment Methodology For Petrochemical Industry

This article will describe an approach to address odours at a gas/petroleum/oil refinery plant from a practical perspective. Using traditional methods of source sampling and modeling for refineries has been shown to be ineffective due to the vast number of sources within the plant. While stacks and lagoons can be easily identified and the odour emission quantified, fugitive sources such as leaks, holding tank  openings, overpressure relief valves, flaring, and residual liquids can all significantly contribute to the total odour emission from the plant. The odours from these processes will travel differently and will often have adverse impact on residence up to hundreds of kilometers away.  Read More
