Guidance on the Control of Odour and Noise from Commercial Kitchen Exhaust

Unique identifier: PB10527

Problems associated with nuisance odour and noise emissions from commercial kitchen exhausts are very common, particularly in urban areas where housing may be adjacent to or even immediately above catering premises. These premises might include pubs, clubs, restaurants and takeaways that may be open until the early hours of the morning.

This guidance document, prepared by Netcen an operating division of AEA Technology, is sought by Defra, and through it the Devolved Administrations of the Scottish Executive, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland to provide clear guidance to the regulation process. Although this guidance is not statutory, it provides information on best practice techniques for the minimisation of odour and noise nuisance from kitchen exhaust systems.
