Odour Management for Biofuels & AD
As those of you in the field will know, the use of biofuels and anaerobic digestion is increasing across the UK. The benefits of using our rubbish to create renewable energy are gaining traction. However, there are drawbacks. Most notably that these plants are associated with unpleasant odours. This can often cause conflict with the local community. Here are the critical things to consider in particular…
Are you planning a new biogas or AD development? Then odour measurement and modelling are valuable tools for you. The insights you gain will allow you to model and minimise odour emissions at your potential plant. Crucially, you can achieve this before committing to build costs. Clearly this is especially useful not only in the development of your plans, but also in support of your planning applications.
Best Practise in Odour Management
Good odour management practises can help you in a number of scenarios. For example, it can help you authenticate odour complaints and reduce the odour emissions of your existing plants. Next, you can use odour measurement data to help satisfy the regulator and prove compliance with operational permits. Finally, proactive odour measurement allows you to identify and rectify odour issues before they become a problem.
