Silsoe Odours uses a process of odour sampling, according to the European Standard BSEN13725:2003, to provide our customers with scientific evidence relating to your odour emissions. This enables you to measure, evaluate and ultimately control the odours which may be produced by your plant and processes.
Our odour emission surveys are tailored for your individual requirements. We can also work with you to advise on appropriate odour management and control measures, to help you comply with any odour management plans required by the regulator.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An odour emission survey involves collecting a range of odour samples from identifiable sources. This sampling process allows us to transfer odour from its source and transport it to the laboratory for olfactometry analysis. The complex process requires expertise, experience and the right equipment.
We use our extensive experience in environmental odour management to identify the potential sources of odour before conducting the assessment. From our specialist UKAS-accredited odour laboratory, we are then able to deliver results which enable understanding of both the magnitude and characteristics of your odour emissions.
Robert Sneath, Director at Silsoe Odours, holds an mCERT accreditation for stack sampling to the EA MID 13725.
At Silsoe Odours Ltd we offer businesses across a range of sectors the evidence they need to enable them to measure, evaluate and ultimately control the odours which may be produced by their plants and processes. Key to emission testing is the identification of the potential sources producing odours. Emission monitoring allows you to understand both the magnitude and the characteristics of your odour emissions.
