Course description: This session covers practical and current aspects of observing and examining odors. The speakers have many years of experience working in agencies, engineering offices, and different areas of the market. They will address many of the different aspects of smells and odors which are perceived in the environment, often those resulting from agriculture work, and which can be quite specific. They also introduce the new guidelines of the VDI (Association of German Engineers).
Target groups: include engineering and planning offices, measurement institutions and agencies, environmental agencies, licensing and zoning agencies, interest organizations and commerce, also companies which have plants or works which emit odors, such as agriculture or industrial and commercial plants.
Course description: This seminar is guided towards a practical examination: which substances are the topic of current discussions on interior pollution and are viewed as affecting health (including smells), what legal ramifications are there upon which we can base an evaluation of odors, and what strategies can we look to and apply when measuring (including taking samples) and evaluating potential pollutants in indoor spaces.
Target groups: laboratories, engineering offices, appraisers, construction biologists, administration (privately owned or municipal), and agencies
