odour testing products materials

Our key activities

Product & material odour testing and optimisation

The way in which an odour is perceived can play a decisive role in the decision to buy, and hence in determining the commercial success of a product. In some cases, a product’s ability to enhance or reduce odours can provide a unique selling point. In others, the presence of unwanted odours can adversely impact the product’s attractiveness.

With the help of odour measurement and odour assessment services, as well as odour certification of products, materials and VOCs, we help you to optimise your products and ensure product quality.

Using sensory and molecular analyses, we find out how a product is perceived in terms of its odour. Selected panelists as well as customised measurement techniques and test designs ensure high-quality measurement results. Highly effective products receive the Olfasense ‘odour quality seal’.

environmental odour testing

Environmental odour analysis, assessment & control

Olfasense offers a full range of sensory and molecular odour analysis services to identify, measure and forecast environmental odours, assess odour impact, and help you define robust odour control solutions.

All of our services are offered in-house and we operate accredited odour sampling teams and olfactometry laboratories. Our highly experienced consultants are experts in odour control techniques and technologies and are highly skilled in the application of odour survey methods including odour dispersion modelling.

We typically work on behalf of industrial or agricultural facilities who are required to control odorous emissions as part of their planning or regulatory permits. We also work for regulators and provide advice to support municipalities and governments to develop odour policy. As pioneers in the digitalisation of odour measurements in the environmental sector, we also facilitate your procedures relating to odour management and complaints.
