For 45 years, WasteExpo has been North America's largest solid waste and recycling tradeshow serving both the private and public sectors. This year Waste expo New Orleans innovates with a all-new Composting and Organics Recycling Conference Track.
Odotech is proud to present at the this Waste Expo’s 1st Annual Organics Recycling and Composting Conference Program | May 20-23, 2013 | New Orleans
We especially invite you to attend Tuesday, May 21 1:45 - 3:00 p.m. the session on Odor Control and Monitoring at Composting and Anaerobic Digestion Facilities and Landfills, Best Management Practices for Worker Health and Safety
- Developing a Composting Facility with Effective Odor Control.
- Odor Monitoring for Anaerobic Digestion, Composting and Landfills.
- Worker Safety and Health at Composting and Anaerobic Digestion Facilities
Come visit us at our booth 3303. Andrew Cowell (514 867-9558) will be galde to introduce you to our new OdoWatch version 4 for smart odor monitoring. Also featuring for the first time new smartphone app for odor recording enabling you to work with your community.
Organics are the #1 material recycled across Canada. This achievement reflects the progress of organics recycling amongst municipalities, businesses and institutions. And yet l, much more needs to be done. Compost advocates are invited to gather in Montreal September 19-21st for the 22nd annual National Compost Conference, an important time for learning, networking and updating our collective organics recycling efforts and vision for composting advances everywhere.
This year, the conference will provide advance days for additional training opportunities as well as offering a dynamic line-up of facility tours and presentations. We look forward to your contribution and involvement in this milestone event.
Pre-Conference Training Opportunities on ODOUR MANAGEMENT 101
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 18 th
The issue of odours on composting activities is becoming increasingly important. Residents' fears, justified or not, make the implementation of composting projects complex. Some sites have unfortunately had to cease their operations in response to odour concerns. However, the tools exist to improve project planning, communicate the impact of of odours and how to proactively manage actual odours to minimize them and the operating costs of composting platform.
Odour management is an area where many industrial and municipal composting operations face issues. Nevertheless, the subject of odour has received inadequate attention. Part of the reason for this is that operators do not know how to approach identifying and/or solving the problem. The idea behind an ‘odour course’ would be to provide some background and potential approaches to addressing odour issues.
Odour Management 101
Principles of odour science and odour control technology as well as measurement and observation techniques will be presented by Thierry Pagé during this day-long session spearheaded by Odotech, specialists in the measurement and monitoring of odours.
No prerequisites are required. A scientific or engineering background would be beneficial to the attendees.
1. The Science of odour perception and odour metrology
- Odour perception
- Odour and human health
- Odour measurement
- Odour sampling on composting sites
- Odour dispersion and modeling
2. Odour assessment
- Regulatory frameworks
- Odour impact
- Field monitoring
- Observer committees and community involvement
- Continuous monitoring
- Odour background assessment
- Case studies
3. Odour control
- Nontechnological approaches
- Abatement techniques
- Give attendees a good understanding of the state-of-the-art techniques for assessing odor problems.
- Provide a toolbox of approaches that could be used for odour management depending on the context.
- Present the range of elements required for odor master planning.
This course is designed for the professional involved in managing environmental odour issues for industrial or municipal operations and are concerned with being a good neighbour. Government agency personnel interested in problem-solving-oriented odour regulations would also find this course very useful.
22nd Annual National Compost Conference September 19-21, 2012
Delta Centre-Ville, Montréal, QC
The Florida Water Resources Conference is planned for April 29 through May 4 in Orlando, Florida at the Renaissance SeaWorld Resort. There will be a two-day technical program covering topics in wastewater, collection systems, regulatory issues and potable systems, to name but a few. Odor in wastewater treatment plants is one of the many topics that will be presented.
Visit Booth #804 - 807, where Kruger (a Veolia Water company) will be located at MTS Environmental booths. MTS, as a representative for Kruger, provides the OdoWatch technology to municipal wastewater treatment plants in Florida. Kruger will have on display a functional model of the OdoWatch eNose. Kruger Product Manager Sharon Paterson will be there to answer your questions about OdoWatch, and why several U.S. municipalities rely on it every day for proactive odor management.
Florida Water Resources Conference, Inc. ("FWRC") is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, which provides an annual educational and technical, multi-day conference servicing individuals in the water and wastewater industry. FWRC is a joint conference of the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association, the Florida Water Environment Association, and the Florida Water and Pollution Control Operators Association.
What if you never had to pay for an odor study again? What if you could diagnose odor problems in minutes instead of hours or days? How much could you save? Find out at the upcoming FWRC event!
The OdoWatch real-time odor monitoring system will be on display at the Florida Water Resources Conference next week, May 1 - 4 in Kissimmee, Florida. Visit us at the Kruger Booth (in the MTS Environmental aisle, booths 224 - 230) to see a demonstration of the OdoWatch eNose technology and learn how your wastewater treatment facility can benefit from the most advanced technology in the world to measure and manage odors.
Find out more about how to register for the conference at: http://www.fwrc.org/
OdoWatch is the only technology that measures odors the way humans experience them, in D/T or odor units. Together with the real-time dispersion model created from actual on-site weather data and the emissions from odor sources, OdoWatch shows you current, color-coded plumes where odor concentrations may be a nuisance. No other technology provides such accurate, timely information on odors.
You can also find information on OdoSulf, the newest H2S monitoring technology that can combine with OdoWatch or stand on its own to provide real-time plumes of hydrogen sulfide impact.
Contact Sharon Paterson, Kruger Product Manager for OdoWatch at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a demonstration or to obtain detailed information on this "best available" technology in advance of the conference. See you at the event!
