GASODOR® S-FREE –
GAS SMELLS LIKE ROTTEN EGGS, DOESN'T IT?
WHY ODORANTS ARE SO IMPORTANT
Gas smells like rotten eggs, doesn't it? Definitely not! After moving home or changing their gas supplier, many people ask: "What does gas smell like?" or "How do I recognise leaking natural gas?"
Since natural gas has not had its own characteristic odour for a long time, so-called odorants are added to warn of leaking natural gas and ensure the safety of gas consumers.
The now obsolete sulphur-containing gas additives actually smelled of rotten eggs, which is because they contain sulphur. Today, natural gas generally smells of sulphur-free odorants, such as Gasodor® S-Free.
