omp guideline

The AMIGO Association is starting to take the first steps to create an International Guideline on Odour Management Plans (OMPS) and is looking for volunteers with experience in this field to participate in this initiative. Often, environmental consultants with no previous experience elaborate OMPs without having the necessary knowledge, simply because they do not have a guide on this. At present there are several guides on PGOs in various countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, etc. However, most of these guides refer to specific activities and are only national in scope.

   Among the many initiatives raised at the last meeting, it was proposed to carry out an international guide on Odour Management Plans (OMP). Sofia Teixeria, a researcher in the Air Quality Group of the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering of the NOVA School of Science and Technology, NOVA University of Lisbon works as a consultant in scientific research projects, and she was proposed as convenor to coordinate the work. Sofia has presented the topic of OMPs many times in the past, most recently at the last NOSE conference.
