When vigi e-nose analyzer is associated with a local meteorological weather station installed on-site, it is possible to appreciate impact of potential emissive sources. The software vigiODOR integrates the real-time information of the chemical and olfactive global fingerprint to model the dispersion of odors around industrial sites. It offers automatic notification for odor exceedance levels on pre-defined sensible points and online registration of complaints. Thanks to forecasting mode and tests using sensory panel perception around the site, industrials can anticipate nuisance and limit their impact on the neighborhood. It has been deployed in France, United Arab Emirates and Poland for applications such as composting activities and water treatment.

EasyTrack, the simplified version of vigiODOR, has been deployed in a petrochemical plant in Chili. It only requires real-time meteorological measurements and emission data of the different sources for the AERMOD dispersion modeling of an industrial site. Results can be displayed and exported from the website.

Both vigiODOR and EasyTrack dispersion software host simplified Gaussian model or more complex Lagrangian model considering the complexity of the topography. Data can be provided by any type of chromatotec analytical solutions considering VOCs, Sulfurs or odor parameters.
