Odour management in the rendering sector

The rendering of animal by-products is one of the most odorous industrial processes in terms of emissions per tonne of processed material.

Throughout the whole process chain, the odours that are released are highly concentrated – up to many millions of odour units per cubic metre – and are generally considered to be at the most unpleasant extreme of the hedonic tone scale. Anyone responsible for odour management in this sector will be well aware of the potential for major social conflict if control systems or strategies fail.
