Silsoe Odours offers a range of both on-site odour impact services and independent, UKAS-accredited, odour laboratory testing and analysis services. We operate across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. Our odour services are developed and managed in our odour laboratory, located in Silsoe, Bedfordshire.
ODOUR DETECTION AND ODOUR CONTROL SERVICES
A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF ODOUR SAMPLING AND ODOUR TESTING SERVICES
Our wide range of odour services can be tailored to your specific needs, helping you meet the operating requirements of the regulator in relation to odour detection and odour control activities. You can choose a fully-combined package or standalone odour services, depending on the intricacies of your specific site(s) and the odour control challenges you face. Our odour experts will be happy to advise you on the best course of action for your requirements.
Our goal is to fully support and enhance your odour control activities, and our approach is two-fold. Firstly, we provide comprehensive and independent scientific data from our UKAS-accredited odour laboratory based in Bedfordshire. Our clients often find this helpful when working with the regulator. You can be confident that all our data is based on accurate measurement, independent analysis and expert diagnostics of odour samples.
Secondly, our significant odour expertise means we will always demonstrate the ways in which the data can be translated into effective preventative and/or remedial action. Our suggestions offer practical and realistic odour control solutions, helping you to reduce the impact odorous emissions have on the environment, satisfy the regulator and avoid costly legal sanctions.
All our advice is based on the Silsoe Odours team’s extensive experience in the field of odour control, which scales more than 35 years. Our remarkable level of technical expertise is, in part, thanks to our involvement with the creation and ongoing development of the European Standard for olfactometry and samples. Silsoe Odours founder, Robert Sneath, has been the UK expert on the committee of the European CEN working group for odour measurement standard BSEN13725:2003, since 1995.
ON-SITE ODOUR IMPACT SERVICES
Providing an overview of the impact your odour emissions may have on the local community is at the core of what we do at Silsoe Odours. There are several methods of odour detection and measurement available. Here are some of our most commonly requested:
Odour Emission Survey – Odour samples collected from identifiable sources, to assess the impact on sensitive receptors in the surrounding areas. Dispersion Modelling– Converts data from the odour emission assessment into a quantitative report which estimates the odour impact on the surroundings, and estimates the odour concentration at locations around the source site. Field Odour Impact Survey – An independent subjective survey measuring the impact of odours, and identifying the specific source(s) where unknown. Smoke Testing – Controlling odours by testing buildings and containers to ensure that weak points in construction are not allowing odours to escape. Odour Assessment Survey for Planning – Primarily to meet planning permission odour control requirements, usually for very small housing developments or a change of use or expansion of a commercial property.
ODOUR LABORATORY TESTING SERVICES
Our specialist odour laboratory in Bedfordshire was the UK’s first UKAS-accredited to ISO17025, and all our odour testing is measured to the BSEN13725 European Standard.

For the past two decades, we have been providing a range of odour support to sectors whose industrial processes or plants provide odorous by-products. We work closely with developing technologies in the renewable energy field, food factories, and composting facilities. Our odour services are also in demand by Environmental, Air Quality Consultants and by planners whose increased use of brownfield sites requires careful odour management to ensure sustained quality of life for residents living close to industrial sites. Silsoe Odours Ltd services help clients to understand, assess and manage the effects of odorous emissions, in order to avoid costly social, regulatory and legal conflicts.
