Abstract

This contribution focus on the selection of sensor array for the use in olfactive nuisance detection and analysis inlandfill and industrial area chemical emissions monitoring. Electrochemical and polymer based sensors are tested for the use in electronic nose instrumentation for the selected application. Two sites, a landfill and an industrial sites are used as testing locations. Results support the feasibility of usage of a subset of the investigated sensors in such scenarios.
