Odour is the main source of complaint to the Environment Agency as well as being the key cause of dispute between site owners/operators and their neighbours. Nuisance odours can be associated with a wide range of activities, including: waste handling; wastewater and sludge treatment as well as the application of material to land. These odours can have a substantial negative impact upon quality of life. In the UK, nuisance odours from industrial, trade and business premises are regulated by local councils under the Environment Act 1990, following H4 guidance.

The treatment and management of odours is typically undertaken through extraction and treatment through different types of odour treatment units or processes including but not limited to biofilters, multi-phase scrubbers and Activated Carbon.  With the advent of AMP7, population growth encroaching upon site boundaries and the deregulation of municipal bioresources markets occurring in 2020, the requirement for effective odour control and management has never been greater.

Anticipated audience includes:

  • Site and/or compliance managers
  • Permitting officers
  • Regulators
  • Odour professionals
