Article
FIDOL factors that represent five dimensions (Frequency, Intensity, Duration, Offensiveness and Location) are tools for odour impact assessment. If the four factors (F, I, D, O) are clearly identified parameters, the fifth one (L) can be interpreted in different ways. Some recent communications are based on FIDOR (R as Receptor) or FIDOS (S as Sens...

The ammonia loss through Nalophan TM bags has been studied. Ammonia was chosen as target compound in order to be representative of odorous molecules of small dimensions. The losses observed for storage conditions and times as allowed by the reference standard for dynamic ol-factometry (EN 13725:2003) indicate that odour concentration values due to...
Article
Full-text available
Source characterization alone is not sufficient to account for the effective impact of odours on citizens, which would require to quantify odours directly at receptors. However, despite a certain simplicity of odour measurement at the emission source, odour measurement in the field is a quite more complicated task. This is one of the main reasons f...
Article
Full-text available
Odour impact assessment has become an important environmental issue. Different approaches can be used in order to evaluate the odour impact on receptors, and therefore to regulate it. Among the different possible regulation approaches, the use of dispersion modelling is suggested or required by several national or regional legislations. The wide di...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Human environmental perception is partially based on his olfactory system as a part of all human senses. This powerful perception is also complex because some compounds are detected so called odorous and others are not perceived so called as non-odorous. For each molecule, the detection limit is different and of course the odour level of a global m...

This paper presents the methodologies to determine odour in ambient air by field inspection that will be a new European standard. The objective is to characterise the odour in a defined area. Without making a link with potential annoyance due to the presence of odours, the described methods propose the way to characterise an exposed environment. Tw...
Article
Odour and odorous compound measurements depend on the first analytical step: the sampling. This first step could be considered as the most important because the global results are dependent on sampling and analytical procedures but the second part (analysis) is globally more controlled. As example, olfactometric measurement procedures are well desc...
Article
Odour emissions from industries can be different depending on odour type linked to the activity. As an example, food and beverage industry such as wineries can also produce odorous compounds. In such activity, the wastewaters (coming from the washing waters of vat, presses and bottles) contain organic residues that are partially transformed in vola...
