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 develop odour policy.

Our company was faced with a difficult task to propose a new odour limit in a non EU country in order to change an emission permit to one where we no longer needed to measure dozens of emissions which were non-hazardous, costly to analyze and could not be controlled. Some said that the task was impossible and we should not even try. We were pointed by some industry colleagues to Olfasense and after exchanging just a few emails about work Olfasense does and their international experience, we knew we had a right partner for this job.Annamarie Velic, Sustainability Manager at large retail company
