Olivier Noiset was rewarded among 2,000 experts by the Belgian Standardization Bureau (NBN) for its contribution to the working groups on air quality, analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and the development of methodologies for odor analysis.
For more than 15 years, Certech has participated as active member in the standardization committees on air quality. Different standards have been developed including: olfactometry, photocatalysis, emission from building materials, indoor air quality of vehicles, ambient air, work environment, indoor air quality, electronic cigarettes.
The Belgian Standardization Office Award rewards our major contribution in the recent years to volatile organic compounds (VOC) and odour standards elaboration for interior and automotive applications. A huge amount of work has been done to improve the reliability of the odor analysis standards considered as subjective. With some colleagues, we had to define, after consensus, the ambient factors impacting the measurement, the materials to be used for sampling or for the presentation device, the configuration of the sniffing ports, the panel management in terms of calibration and training, the definition of a sensory space based on the use of appropriate chemical descriptors.
