Abstract

Odour emissions coming from a landfill were quantified by using a reversed modelling technique in combination with a series of odour detection campaigns. During the detection campaigns an odour detection team traced the boundaries of the odour pollution area and at the same time the meteorological data needed for the atmospheric dispersion model IFDM were collected at the landfill site. Two different methods were used to compare the modelled odour distributions with the experimentally obtained data. The methods produced comparable results for the different campaigns, allowing an evaluation of the impact of the odour limiting measures currently applied to the landfill. 1 Introduction Odour emissions can
