This article is an open access publication Abstract Field olfactometry is one of the sensory tech- Graphical abstract niques used to determine odour concentration, in atmospheric air, directly in emission sources. A two-di- mensional gas chromatography with time of flight mass spectrometer (GC9GC–TOF-MS) allows performing the chemical characterization of various groups of chemical compounds, even in complex mixtures. Application of these techniques enabled determination of odour concen- tration level in atmospheric air in a vicinity of the oil refinery and the neighbouring wastewater treatment plant. The atmospheric air samples were analysed during a time period extending from February to June 2016. Based on the Keywords Gas chromatography  Odorous substances GC9GC–TOF-MS analysis and odour threshold values, Mass spectroscopy  Field olfactometry  Wastewater the theoretical odour concentrations were calculated and treatment plant  Oil refinery compared with the Monatshefte für Chemie - Chemical Monthly Springer Journals
