Ambient odour monitoring
Air Environment can monitor the impact that odours are having on the community.
Our patrols can chase specific odour plumes or monitor odour at fixed locations. This allows us to measure the impact of a facility’s emissions on the whole community, or the impact of a range of odour-generating activities on a sensitive land user.
These field-based ambient odour surveys are a key monitoring tool to identify odour sources, to understand the way they are dispersing, and to measure the strength, persistence and frequency of impact on the community. We can identify which odour sources have the most effect, under which weather conditions, and if neighbouring facilities are also contributing.
Air Environment’s consultants have performed many hundreds of ambient odour surveys around many different odour emission sources. Source activities monitored include: sewage treatment plants, landfills, alternative waste treatment technology plants, waste transfer stations, regulated liquid waste treatment plants, composting facilities, crude and edible oil processing refineries, alumina refineries, poultry farms, abattoirs and rendering facilities, food production plants and motor vehicle manufacturing plants.
We can conduct regular measurement surveys over a set period of time to ensure we provide the full picture of what is happening at different times of day, seasons and weather conditions.
