11 UNSW Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Emissions from Sewer Networks in Sydney. There were over a hundred VOC compounds identified in Sydney sewers. The temporal variability of the VOCs showed that emissions were affected by temperature and rainfall conditions and an enhanced volatilization rate of VOCs occurred in dry and hot weather. OzWater2012 Conference, Sydney, May 2012 Full Paper
12 UNSW Beyond H2S: Applying Gas Chromatograohy to Characterise Sewer Odour Emissions A long term monitoring program of several sewers in Sydney to identify key and assess seasonal emission trends of non-H2S sewer emissions. WEF Odours Conference in April 2012 Full Paper
13 UNSW Characterising Volatile Organic Compounds from Sewer Emissions by Thermal Desorption coupled with Gas-Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry An analytical method was developed to characterise volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from sewer networks by actively collecting the samples using sorbent tubes followed by the Thermal Desorption coupled with Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (TD-GC-MS) Nose2012 Conference , Italy, Sept 2012 Full Paper
14 UNSW Is H2S a Suitable Process Indicator for Odour Abatement Performance of Sewer Odours? The fate of non-H2S odorants during the treatment processes was investigated. Gas chromatographic analysis of odour components (NMVOCS and VOSCs) with dynamic olfactometry were analysed to identify any correlation between odour and the single compounds removal from selected different treatment processes. 5th Odour and Air Emissions Conference in San Francisco, March 2013 Full Paper
