Dust, Odour and Noise Impact Assessments for an Expansion of an Existing Egg Production Facility

Duke Ismael

A currently operating egg production facility located in Wallacia has commissioned Benbow Environmental to prepare the dust, odour and noise impact studies to support their development application to increase their operations.  The assessments were conducted using the dispersion modelling program AUSPLUME and the noise modelling program SoundPlan to determine the dust, odour and noise impacts at the nearest health sensitive residences and receptors.  Results have shown that the predicted impact levels were compliant given the inherent environmental design of the egg laying sheds which allowed to reduce the noise, dust and odour impacts from the operations, to which Benbow Environmental commends by undertaking such a best practice approach for reducing environmental impacts.
