Description of the Course
The course looks at the identification and management of odour issues in the industrial or municipal context. The primary tool to management of odour impacts is typically the development and implementation of an odour management and control plan that is typically submitted to the regulator for approval. This course takes the participant from an understanding of the mechanisms that generate odours through the assessment of the problem and the development of a suitable management plan. This is done using experience gained on a wide variety of projects and applied in a case study format from initial complaint assessment through to management plan development.
