CPANS Luncheon: Odour Perception, Measurement and Prediction

Odour Perception, Measurement and Predictionby Kim O’Neill, Senior Project Manager Specialist, RWDI AIR Inc.Odour is a nuisance in our environment and is becoming recognized for its adverse effect potential regardless of the chemical composition of the odour. Because odour is subjective, its measurement, quantification and prediction are complex. This presentation will discuss odour measurement and quantification options, in particular olfactometry. The perception of odour and the FIDOL scale will be examined and further discussion will be had of modelling and what the implications of these predictions represent. Odour mitigation options will be briefly examined.
