DNOSES Policy Brief in Italian
DNOSES Policy Brief in Italian

L’inquinamento olfattivo è strettamente correlato alle problematiche ambientali e sanitarie, pertanto, necessita di una regolamentazione più rigorosa in Europa. Il coinvolgimento dei cittadini nei processi di controllo e gestione degli odori è vantaggioso per tutte le parti interessate, in quanto promuove l’educazione scientifica, migliora le relazioni e aumenta la fiducia nelle autorità pubbliche

Map depicting a field inspection and dispersion modelling to estimate odour
Combination of field inspection and dispersion modelling to estimate odour emissions from an Italian landfill

In the case of landfills, the determination of odour emissions is particularly complex. Up to now, no universally Odour emission rate accepted methodology for sampling and assessing emissions from landfill surfaces has been established. Besides, Odour impact assessment the dependence of such emissions from some crucial environmental variables, such as wind speed, has not been univocally defined yet. In this study, odour dispersion modelling and plume inspections by human assessors were combined in order to estimate the odour emissions from a landfill in Southern Italy.

A review of odour impact criteria in selected countries around the world
A review of odour impact criteria in selected countries around the world

Exposure to environmental odour can result in annoyance, health effects and depreciation of property values. Therefore, many jurisdictions classify odour as an atmospheric pollutant and regulate emissions and/or impacts from odour generating activities at a national, state or municipal level. In this work, a critical review of odour regulations in selected jurisdictions of 28 countries is presented.
