Project: Investigation to underpin the standardisation of odour annoyance by annoying activities.

project duration
01-JAN-97 – 30-SEP-98
On the basis of elaborate odour investigations round a few factories belonging to a homogeneous sector, a methodology is proposed to formulate odour norms. A sector is called 'homogeneous' when there are qualitative analogous odour emission sources and analogous technical processes. These odour norms are formulated in the form of odour concentration norms. Such norms are build up on the basis of investigation of the relationship between the modelled exposure concentrations and the annoyance near the odour source.
