Malodourous emission from raw natural rubber (NR) processing activities has become a public nuisance since residential and public development areas are gradually expanding near raw NR processing factories. The malodourous vapour mainly consists of volatile fatty acids (VFA) released from the breakdown of non-rubber constituents during drying stage of the raw rubber processing. An improved sampling methodology to characterise and monitor VFA from the drying stage was implemented. This study… Expand
