One of Air & Waste Management Associations’s most well-attended events, this conference provides a forum for current advances in measurement technology covering all aspects of air quality, including ambient air, indoor air, point sources, and area sources. Professionals from academia, consulting, industry, government, and manufacturers will gather to hear the latest information on available technology, including new monitoring networks and regulations from industry and government experts, as well as citizen and community monitoring efforts.
Professionals from academia, consulting firms such as SCS Engineers, industry, government, and manufacturers will gather to hear the latest information on available technology, including new monitoring networks and regulations from industry and government experts, as well as citizen and community monitoring efforts.
Air quality issues related to greenhouse gas measurements, ambient monitoring, fugitive and area source air measurements, quality assurance, and data use in order to improve models, emission inventories, and policy decisions will also be addressed.
Includes a session by Paul Schafer and Thomas J. Rappolt of SCS Engineers, entitled Assessment of Odor Impacts from Landfill Operations.
Paul and Tom will outline a methodology and approach for conducting a Landfill Odor Assessment with a goal of building a comprehensive odor emissions profile for the subject facility. The presentation will then outline the steps needed to properly model the downwind worst case potential impacts to neighboring regions.
A step by step protocol will be outlined that ensures comprehensive coverage of facility emissions and related impacts. The authors will discuss the value of odor complaint data and its role in the assessment process.
In addition, common mistakes often made in odor assessment studies will be discussed and ways to avoid misuse of data. Multiple types of measurement methods will be described as well as their relative strengths and weaknesses. Methods involving sonic anemometers, isolation flux chambers, odor panels, filter-based sampling methods, and tracer gas techniques will be discussed and highlighted.
