Smelly industrial and wastewater processing is an inevitable part of life. We need these systems, preferably in a way that doesn't adversely affect communities.
How do we respond to odours, and what can we do if we live near a smelly processing plant? The way we respond to odours is highly subjective, so how can we measure or report what our noses are telling us?
These are questions that concern Dr Ruth Fisher. Dr Fisher is a Research Associate at the UNSW Odour Laboratory.
