The company Hauswirth is planning the operation of a cocoa roasting plant in Kittsee. The cocoa roasting plant is a unique facility in Austria in this form, which was designed by the company Hauswirth.

By order of the company Hauswirth VCE, a sonic study and a study on the odour immissions in the nearest neighbourhood were carried out.

In a test run the acoustic emissions and odorous substances were recorded and subsequently analysed by measurement engineers of FCP. The odorous substances released during cocoa roasting were examined and an atmospheric dispersion simulation based on the latter was performed to determine the impacts of the odours created in the neighbourhood.

The acoustic emissions measured are entered into a dispersion calculation program and the predicted immissions are compared with an ambient noise measurement without operation of the plant.
