Abstract: A method of quantifying the odor strength of wastewater samples has been investigated. Wastewater samples from two locations of a wastewater treatment plant were collected and subjected to air stripping. The off-gas odor concentration was measured by a dynamic olfactometer at various time intervals. Applying a first order model to the decay of odorous substances in the wastewater under air stripping, the initial odor strength of the wastewater was determined. The model was found to be acceptable under five different air-stripping rates studied.
