This work describes a quantitative evaluation through CFD simulations of air flow and passive odour emission from open-roof tanks, as for example wastewater treatment tanks, to find out a numerical correlation to evaluate the specific emission rate (SER) of the source emission. This approach allows it to be implemented as a pollutant emission source in large-scale simulations obtaining a reduction in the necessary computational resources.
