New Chilean Standards for Odours

Odotech is pleased to report that it actively participated in technical working groups for changes made to the Chilean standards related to odours. The accumulated expertise of the company for almost 20 years and its knowledge in measurement, modeling and monitoring of odours and gaseous pollutants allowed Odotech to contribute to these working groups.

Indeed, in December 2015, the standard "Static Sampling for Olfactometry" (# 3386) and "Air Quality - Evaluation of Odours - Survey" (# 3387) were added to the existing Chilean standard released in 2010 "Air Quality - Determination of Odour Concentration by Dynamic Olfactometry "(# 3190).

The task targeted by the competent Chilean authorities to build a Chilean odour management strategy to "...strengthen the regulatory framework through the short, medium and long term measures to quantify, control and prevent odour production with an holistic management approach " (Estrategia para la gestión de olores Chile 2014 - 2017, Ministry of Environment, 2013) is almost completed.
