Odour Impact Assessments and Developments in Hong Kong

Dear Members,

We are pleased to invite you to join an online webinar –  Odour Impact Assessments and Developments in Hong Kong co-organised by HKIQEP and Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 1 December 2021 (Wednesday).

Air pollution has been increasingly noticed by the citizens, and nowadays, odour emission related to different industrial activities is recognized as an annoying environmental issue. There are frequent complaints in Hong Kong from the population living near plants characterized by undesirable odour emissions (e.g., waste treatment and landfill plants, wastewater treatment plants, livestock activities, etc.). As the public is becoming more sensitive towards the air quality and odour problems, odour emissions are subjected to control in Hong Kong. At the same time, specific tools and methods for odour nuisance assessment need to be developed and standardized for the practical application in sophisticated industrial sites. The current odour sampling methods and assessment methodologies applicable to impact assessments including odour patrol, dynamic odour sampling, laboratory olfactometric measurements with human panels and advanced instrument analysis will be discussed. In addition, most recent development and feasible strategies for the impact assessment and control of odour pollutions in different industrial scenarios will be introduced.
