The latest version of ADMS 5 is now available for download. Alongside this we have also completely updated ADMS-Screen.
ADMS 5 simulates a wide range of buoyant and passive releases of pollutants to the atmosphere. Applications include planning and permitting, stack height assessment, odour modelling, environmental impact assessments and safety planning.
New features in ADMS 5.2 include:
project files: allowing background maps, contour plots, layer symbology and more to be saved and reopened with your model input files;
simple extraction of terrain files from OS terrain 50 and SRTM data formats;
more flexible hourly time-varying emissions file format (.var); and
file drag-drop and context menus throughout the Mapper and ADMS interface.
For more information about all the new features please see the What's New in ADMS 5.2? guide. Eligible ADMS 5 users should already have received the new version free of charge.
ADMS-Screen is a screening version of ADMS 5, for modelling dispersion from a single stack to calculate ground-level concentrations, providing rapid assessments of stack height. Easy comparison with air quality strategy objectives and European Union air quality standards can be made. ADMS-Screen now includes the ADMS Mapper for visualising model input and output.
Dispersion modelling plays an important role in the assessment of potential odour annoyance for planned activities and the investigation of complaints related to existing facilities. However, compared to general air pollution modelling there are particular challenges associated with modelling odour dispersion and exposure due to the importance of odour variations over short timescales to the perceived nuisance.

Recently a complex project has been carried out that included the construction of a new bus service station, the modernization of the road system (extension of an existing road), the modernization of the sewage system through the construction of a modern pumping system and finally the rehabilitation of the adjacent park, very frequented by tourists and residents of the vicinity. Since the pumping system was located under the surface of the park, after a while there was a problem of very unpleasant odors that came...
In January 2018, the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) of Western Australia released a draft of an Odour guideline for prescribed premises designed to guide applicants, licensees, consultants, members of the public and Department staff on the requirements for odour impact risk analysis.
The public consultation will finish the next 19 April 2018, so if you have any comments related to this topic, the Western Australia Department is still seeking feedback on this draft guideline.

One of the biggest operational challenges for landfills is dealing with persistent odors, which can be a nuisance for employees and neighboring businesses and residents. Mitigating foul odors often requires a significant investment in solutions that are often comprised of chemicals that merely mask the bad smells.
Thankfully, there are solutions that are both eco-friendly and highly effective – creating a safer, odor-free environment. This was the key theme of a recent Waste360 article that highlights...
