Australian Odour and Air Emissions 2012,will be the inaugural conference on assessment and management of odours and air emissions, 4-6 December 2012, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
Odour and air emissions (including volatile organic compounds, sulfur and nitrogen containing compounds, and greenhouse gases) have the potential to impact the environment and health. The assessment and management of these emissions are a high priority for a wide range of sectors including wastewater treatment, sewerage, solid and trade waste management, agriculture and livestock, and manufacturing. While significant advances have been made in the assessment and management of these emissions, numerous technical and institutional challenges remain.
On behalf of the UNSW Water Research Centre we would like to invite you to join us for the inaugural Australian Odour and Air Emissions (AusOE) Conference. We are proud to have the support of the Australian Water Association (AWA), the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ), and the Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) for this conference.
This event will provide a national platform for practitioners, managers, and researchers to benefit from cross-industry knowledge transfer through profiling the latest developments in this field, and discussing successful approaches for the assessment and management of odour and air emissions.
