DEVELOPING ODOR IMPACT ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES
Abstract:The introduction of forthcoming Australian and New Zealand standard on odor measurement has led to the review of odor regulation in most Australian states and in New Zealand. This paper deals with the key elements of odor impact assessment procedure: sampling technique, olfactometry method, dispersion modeling, and odor impact criteria. The effects of these elements on the outcome of the odor impact assessment are discussed in detail. Odor dispersion modeling must be applied with great care to avoid faulty results. The odor impact assessment procedures are critical in achieving meaningful outcomes. It is hoped that this paper will be a useful guide for both industry and environmental protection authorities in the development of odor impact assessment procedure.
