Autobody Spray Booth Odors
If the emissions are released at ground level, or near ground
level, perhaps a stack (vent pipe), to release emissions above

Has anyone determined if the odor problem is real? I read a good
story about an individual who cronically complained about odors
from sewage sludge application on a nearby field. Reportedly,
parking an EMPTY spreader truck on the field received the same
If the problem is imaginery, or the complainant is sensitized to
the odors, plain auto or diesel truck engine emissions might set
them off. Could there be odors from other sources for which the
paint operation is being blamed? Gas pumps?
About the only other method, P2 aside, for eliminating odors is to
run them through a "treatment" unit prior to release. In colder
areas, now that fall is upon us, windows tend to be closed more
often minimizing such complaints.
