The article discusses why companies in Great Britain should set up an effective odor management system. Businesses operating under an Integrated Pollution Prevention Control (IPPC) permit usually have an odor management plan. However, some start-up firms do not have their own plan. To avoid involving the Environment Agency (EA) or the Department for the Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) over odor-related problems, companies are advised to establish an odor dispersion system.
