Kruger's OdoWatch® system is the world's first real-time, continuous odor monitoring technology. OdoWatch combines odor detection with wireless, automated instruments to capture continuous emissions and weather data. It provides wastewater operators with the tools needed to prevent and manage odors before they become a nuisance within close proximity. The new 3.0 system uses EPA-approved AERMOD modeling that can follow the odor plume over complex terrain.
