Odor Quantification and Control
This air quality odor webinar will address how air quality odors are handled from a regulatory standpoint, as well as odor quantification, odor monitoring systems, odor modeling, odor control systems, and generally how to address odor issues. There are numerous odor-causing substances; as an example, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is known to be a common odor-causing compound, and odor nuisance can be detected in some individuals as low as 0.5 parts per billion (ppb). Monitoring for H2S or other odors presents unique challenges due to the intermittency of source strength, limitations to instrument detection levels, and operating data acquisition systems that manage instantaneous and short-term averaging periods, as well as threshold notifications. Each of the odor compounds will have unique control system requirements. This webinar will cover common odor situations and practical steps that can be taken to address odor complaints.
