Last Odour Study Day of 2018

Yesterday, 24th October, marked the last Odour Study Day of 2018. We hosted 31 delegates at the Silsoe Odours UKAS-accredited laboratory in Bedfordshire. Delegates joined us from a variety of businesses, namely operators, local authorities, industry bodies and environmental consultants. Robert Sneath (Silsoe Odours), Steve Peirson (RSK) and Phil Longhurst (Cranfield University) provided comprehensive odour guidance. They used their extensive experience to clearly set key issues into context, together with case studies and personal anecdotes. The day was truly a great success, as you can see from the delegates’ comments further down this page.
