Industrial Odour Emission Legislation
October 1999 sees the introduction of the new Industrial Prevention & Control 1999
(IPPC). Replacing much of Part 1 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 the Act brings new legislations that will have a significant impact on many UK Industries.
Companies need to be aware of the following with regard to Industrial Odour Emissions :-
- Industrial Odour Emissions should be controlled to a level where it is non-detectable to human senses at the site boundary of the place of work.
- Any control methods used by the company to regulate odour emissions should use the best technology available in the market.
Companies are subject to reviews by Regulatory Authorities with regard to Environmental Emissions Compliance. Reviews can occur at any time.
- Under Air Pollution Control (APC) Legislation Local Authorities have the power to instruct a company to install odour pollution controls if the number of complaints from residents regarding odour emissions
reaches Nuisance Pollutant levels. Failure to comply with Authority demands can result in legal proceedings.
In order to assess how the new odour emissions legislation will affect your company's production process we would very much appreciate your co-operation in completing the attached 'Fax-Back'
Questionnaire at your earliest convenience. It will take only a couple of minutes to complete and will hopefully be beneficial to you in ensuring that your company is environmentally compliant.

In response to tightening European legislations with regard to industrial odour emissions the AEROX - Injector was developed by Holland based company Jongerius Aerob.
Using technology unique to the market called Foto-Oxidation the system is able to provide cost-effective and extremely efficient solutions to a company's odour emission problems.
Deodourisation by the AEROX-INJECTOR is based on high speed oxidation. The oxidised molecules cannot be detected organoleptically, hence they do not bother the observer.
The AEROX-INJECTOR system consists of a SS304
cabinet with uv/catalysts. Ambient air is radiated and, as a result, the oxygen and water vapour molecules are dissociated. This transition is the first step in a process where eventually an extremely reactive gas is
formed comprising a mixture of instable oxygen atoms, ions, radicals etc., with elevated electron energy levels.
This gas, often called 'active oxygen', has the ability to execute a high speed oxidation process with
the odour components following injection in the polluted air which removes the odour compound of the molecules.
