Waste management has always been closely linked to the odours issue. Recent attention to this issue has led regulators and standardization bodies to introduce specific regulations and special standards for confinement and monitoring. The contents of the most recent European and International standards will be described during the Active Lab. Among them, instructions to determine odour in ambient air using field inspection according to EN 16841 and to determine odour concentration in dynamic olfactometry according to EN 13725 will be discussed in depth. In addition, the performance of the odour monitoring through instrumental monitoring systems will be demonstrated and tested in practice, such as “electronic nose” and active and passive samplers for the detection of ‘tracer’ compounds.
The active lab will last four hours including theory and practical exercitation with instruments.
