Final Report - ODOUR CONTROL (Smart Odour Control system to increase product quality, occupational safety, and safeguard the location and jobs, based on forward-looking tools …)

Project ID: 16730
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the ODOUR CONTROL project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, ODOUR CONTROL aimed to control odour problems in the paper industry by identifying, monitoring, and controlling odour creating micro-organisms and metabolites within paper mill water circuits and their products.

The formation of biologically based odours is a complex and challenging process whose full description and control required a number of disciplines. The report covers the field of biotechnology, physics, chemistry and process engineering in order to provide successful integrated solutions. It also describes rapid monitoring products for detecting odour forming microorganisms and odorous compounds fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) and artificial olfactory systems (AOSs) triggering tailor-made countermeasures to be combined into an odour control system.
