Odour Risk Assessment
In order to carry out a site specific odour risk assessment it is necessary to mimic as closely as possible the conditions under which the full scale plant will produce a potentially odorous off-gas from the aeration process.
Bubling methane stripping tank
“The offgas vented from a methane stripping plant may give rise to complaints about odours from some leachates unless suitable odour control is provided.”
To do this we use our a trial plant equipment, is set up (as described elsewhere) and run for up to 4 hours.
2. Running the Trial Equipment to Obtain an Odour Sample
An air sample is taken which is sent to an odour panel. The odour panel records the test panel’s views on the severity of the odour.
3. Producing the Odour Report
The report will include a conclusion which will either demonstrate that no significant odour impact will occur, or if an impact is identified, it will propose ameliorative measures, such as the provision of a suitable odour removing bio-filter.
4. The Odour Report is Submitted to the Permitting Authorities
