Odour dispersion modelling

Is there something in the air?

If you’re involved in the planning of a new industrial facility, you’ll want to know how it will affect the local air quality. Perhaps you’re looking for information about an existing facility, or a proposed modification. Either way, Odournet’s odour dispersion modelling will give you the answers you need.

How can we help?

Using a mathematical simulation of how air pollutants disperse in the ambient atmosphere, we can determine whether existing or proposed industrial facilities comply with the relevant standards. We can also help you design effective control strategies to reduce emissions of harmful air pollutants.

Our extensive experience in the application of meteorological prediction models and advanced dispersion models allows us to generate high-quality impact assessments for odour and traditional pollutants all over the world. We can:

  • assess regulatory compliance
  • verify the effectiveness of regulations
  • determine the potential impacts of new projects or modifications to existing installations through ‘What if’ analysis
  • make stack height calculations
  • assess odour control technology
  • evaluate air pollution episodes, and investigate the origins of complaints
  • make site evaluations for new-build facilities.

Need to know more?

Odournet has been closely involved in advising on national and regional regulatory limit values, which gives us significant insight into the interpretation of modelling results. This is of great benefit to clients in countries where no applicable legislation is available, and who have to make robust estimations of the limit values that could be adopted locally in the future. We have, for example, already used modelling in this way in the Netherlands, Ireland, England, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Australia, Chile and Colombia.
