Odors and fumes are the natural by-product of many chemical manufacturing processes. Up until a few years ago, odors were considered something inevitably present around many chemical plants. But recently a number of methods have been developed for controlling or eliminating industrial odors.
Most odors emanating from chemical plants are not physically dangerous. But they have proved to be psychologically dangerous.
The fact that they do not cause organic disease is a difficult point to prove — particularly when the surrounding community, submerged in a disagreeable odor, has been aroused by uninformed rumors and misleading information.
Industrial odors are now recognized as a very definite part of the over-all air pollution picture.
Methods now commercially available for the control of odors from exhaust stacks may be divided into five general classifications:
- odor masking, and
- odor counteraction.
