The guideline VDI 3894 enables to assess odour sensations caused by livestock installations on the basis of a distance regulation and according to the criteria of the Guideline on Odour in Ambient Air (GIRL). Distances are a function of the emission rate of the livestock installation, the spatial extension of the sources, the frequency of wind direction and the frequencies of odour hours being permissible according to GIRL. Sensitivity analysis shows that the determination of the immission limit values for odour sensation is more crucial for the assessment than the precise determination of the source strength or of the frequency of wind direction.
