For this diploma thesis 76 questionnaires about odour in the atmosphere were
evaluated. The questionnaire was created by the Austrian Academy of Science
(Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften) and filled in by people dealing
with odour throughout Austria.
The aim of this diploma thesis was to find out, if existing guidelines are entirely
sufficient to control odour emission, transmission and immission. A revision of directives in all fields is recommended. Existing policies are to be
simplified, supplemented and made concrete. In addition new directives should
be created, including some of the already existing guidelines.
