Gestion des odeurs dans l’environnement

Les installations qui sont à l’origine de ces odeurs, se trouvent dans l’obligation de contrôler l’impact de celles-ci sur les riverains afin d’éviter des conflits sociaux, administratifs et juridiques.

Avec plus de 30 ans d’expérience, les experts du groupe Odournet travaillent en tant que conseillers dans le monde entier, sur toutes les questions d’odeur dans le but de répondre à ce défi.

Working with Odournet was a great experience in several aspects: Because the consultant Ton van Harreveld has extensive expertise in the subject of control and measurement of odours, the odour problems generated in the box culvert (in the Muña reservoir) and central Hydroelectric Paradise belonging to Emgesa, due to high concentrations of H2S released into the atmosphere affecting the nearby community were clearly detected. As a result some solutions and recommendations were proposed: implementation of technologies (bio trickling scrubbers, iron oxide /iron wool/Iron Sponge pre-treatment, etc), improve the measurements, data collection, modeling and working with the community. Furthermore, the experience that Ton has in working with the community was a plus for the proposal to the solutions for Emgesa, because it was an aspect that had neglected and a good relation with the community can generate positive results. Finally, we believe strongly that the choice of Odournet was the best option to solve the problem due to the commitment, expertise and professionalism of its consultants; hopefully in the near future we can get back to work with you.
