Environmental and indoor odors are increasingly of concern, yet complex to understand. Some are generated by natural sources while others are the by-products of manufacturing, treatment, processing, and other industrial operations. In many cases, an odor is generated by a complex combination of sources, often caused by compounds present at concentrations well below instrumental detection limits.
GEI’s professional sensory staff has extensive experience in odor evaluation, and we offer a range of services to help investigate, monitor, and resolve complex odor issues, including:
- Site Odor Audits - Odor profiling of commercial facilities to define odor types and intensities, define risks of environmental and community impact, identify possible sources, and generate options for resolution
- Community Odor Surveys - Odor profiling of local communities to define odors and possible sources
- Indoor Air Odor Investigation and Monitoring – Odor profiling of indoor air quality to define odors, assess impact on overall health and comfort, identify possible sources, and generate options for resolution
