Odor complaints and commercial operations often go hand-in-hand, especially as population growth sends residential developments sprawling closer to industrial sites. However, because odor investigation and assessments rely on highly subjective procedures, it can be challenging to detect and quantify odor. By the time the odor complaint is processed and an investigator is dispatched, the smell may not be present at all! 

Enforcing odor-related mandates and evaluating odor events objectively is nearly impossible (and undoubtedly problematic). But what if real-time data could be part of the odor complaint management process?

Benefits of real-time data in odor complaint management 

At Byers Scientific, we believe there’s power in data. That’s why we’ve learned to leverage the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and our custom-developed Cloud-based SCADA platform to capture data in real-time using our odor control equipment. While the benefits of this real-time data are myriad, a few standouts include: 

  • Remote control and monitoring — using Byers Scientific’s proprietary SCADA platform, you don’t have to be on-site to keep on top of odor problems because you have real-time data at your fingertips. This empowers you to optimize the deployment of odor neutralization, saving money while increasing efficiency and maximizing odor control. 
  • Robust operational data reports — compiling your data lets you prove your facility’s adherence to OAP requirements to regulators and licensing agencies.
  • Reduced risk and liability — regulators can see real-time data corresponding with odor complaints, the odor mitigation equipment and systems running at the time of the complaint, and how efficiently they were running. 

Access to both real-time odor intelligence and historical data is invaluable in the fight against odor complaints. Our science and data-derived mitigation and monitoring solutions significantly reduce the risk and liability associated with the perceived smells from nearby communities.
