A feedlot and compost facility in rural Alberta had been receiving complaints from nearby residents within the surrounding community, located in the outskirts of a major city. These complaints were numerous and collected quickly over a short period of time, prompting the local Government to demand immediate action or face the potential closure of their facility.
Upon being contacted, Scentroid completed an immediate odour impact assessment employing the use of the scentroid SM100 and odotracker in order to provide olfactometric and analytic measurements throughout the site. Data points were collected within the interior of the site and along the fence line. This allowed Scentroid to model the data, which displayed the severity and extent that the odor air plume could extend. This resulted in a staggering 20km radius. It was at this point the client had decided that they wanted to monitor the facility continuously, resulting in the use of 2 SL50 units. Scentroid directed the facility where to install the units to ensure the most ideal location for further data mining.
As city council had sought the termination of the facility, Scentroid had served as expert witnesses to ensure that the odour situation would be contained and monitored and is within reasonable limits. Our team also provided a wealth of knowledge regarding mitigation solutions to manage the odour in order to minimize complaints.
