In this study, field inspection method was used for odour immission measurements around a sugar factory in Ankara. The main reasons for this selection were the high odorous emissions released from the factory and the factory being located in a residential area. Field inspections (immission measurements) were performed around a sugar factory in order to determine immission levels. At the end of the immission measurements, a setback distance of 1.5 km is determined that should be around a sugar factory.
