A state-of-the-art review was made to collect and evaluate information on the instrumentation available to measure the quantities of specific odorants in industrial plant emissions. Its object is to examine the possibility of substituting a quantitative measurement of odorants for the subjective measurement of odors as a guide for the control of odorous emissions. The review presents background information for the basic definitions of the problem of odorant emission measurements, and the types of instrumentation available. Details are given of the three industries considered as odorant sources. Information is given on specific instruments which are commercially preferred, or available alternates, or potential alternates where further development is required. (Author)
