Well, H2S has a pungent rotten egg smell when it is released into the atmosphere. Unfortunately, tons of H2S is produced by petroleum and natural gas refining, coke ovens, food processing, biofuel generation, and wastewater treatment.
WHAT IS SO BAD ABOUT H2S?
Aside from its unpleasant scent, you will want to steer clear of H2S because it can lead to headaches, poor memory, and poor motor function. High concentrations can even be fatal. H2S is also terrible for the environment since it can combine with atmospheric gasses and lead to acid rain.
WHAT DOES H2S HAVE TO DO WITH INTERRA GLOBAL?
Today, landfills, dairy farms, and wastewater treatment plants are capturing biogas and converting it into a renewable source of energy. But the biogas contains H2S and other harmful contaminants. H2S is so strong it can corrode steel and iron pipes. Interra Global’s H2S removal media, FerroSorp, can help prevent these problems. FerroSorp is made of iron hydroxide pellets and efficiently removes H2S from gas streams. The used-up pellets are non-hazardous and can be disposed of like any other garbage.
