Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Listed here are questions we frequently receive related to our gas odorant products.

If you can’t find the answer you need below, ask the Odor Experts here.

What are the primary causes of odorant fade?

Odor fade is a loss of odorant inside the pipe. It is different from odor masking. Odor fade occurs in new pipeline by adsorption at the pipe surface. The natural gas velocity can impact this phenomenon. Mercaptan can also react with rust (iron oxide). If you face odor fade, do not hesitate to ask for our support to solve this issue.

How do you handle towels used to clean up odorant waste? Are they hazardous?

We recommend placing any materials used to handle odorant, such as towels, in a DOT approved drum and disposing of them as a hazardous waste. These materials are hazardous; you would need to find a facility that could properly dispose of hazardous material. We recommend the use of a neutralizing agent to control potential odor-related issues; visit our Odor Control page to find more about O-ScentTM. Odor-Tech can also advise you on setting up spill management protocols.

What regulation drives the addition of odor to natural gas?

The Department of Transportation regulates the odorization of gas. The details can be found in code 40 CFR 192.625 (Odorization of Gas). Other international and local associations have also developed some guidelines.  Do not hesitate to contact us to know more about these.
