While the increasing improvement in the performance of foul air treatment systems can often result in efficiencies of 99 percent and higher, that benefit is lost unless the sources of odor are well contained, captured, and conveyed for subsequent treatment. This paper presents current
design guidelines for foul air ventilation, capture, and collection including theory and practical examples. It addresses the following topics: ventilation regulations, building pressurization, covered tanks and channels, hoods, ductwork, and fans.
