Workshop A: Status of The Application, Design and Operation of Biological Odor Control Systems
Sunday, April 15, 2012 | 8:30am – 2:00pm

This workshop will focus on the state of the art in the treatment of odors using biological odor control systems. Topics will include biofilters, bioscrubbers, biotrickling scrubbers, activated sludge diffusion, and multi-stage systems with a full description of how each type of biological treatment method can be applied to a variety of process odors. An emphasis will be made on the types of biological media in use today and how they are applied based on their specific characteristics. Case histories will be used as a learning tool and breakout sessions will complement the presentations with some hands on experience by the attendees.

Workshop B: Odor Sampling and Evaluation Issues – How Reliable are Odor Assessments?
Sunday, April 15, 2012 | 8:30am – 2:00pm

This workshop will introduce participants to the different techniques for assessing odors including techniques for source (point, area, fugitive) sampling, ambient odor sampling and assessments. There will be an overview of odor sampling issues and how to minimize or reduce these issues. Several case studies will be introduced to demonstrate how different odor results can be identified using proper sampling and evaluation techniques.
