Colorless, flammable, extremely hazardous gas with a “rotten egg” smell that occurs naturally in crude petroleum, natural gas, and hot springs and is produced by bacterial breakdown of organic materials and human and animal wastes (e.g. sewage).
NOTE 1 Some common names for the gas include sewer gas, stink damp, swamp gas, and manure gas.
NOTE 2 Industrial activities that can produce the gas include petroleum/natural gas drilling and refining, wastewater treatment, coke ovens, tanneries, and paper mills. Hydrogen sulfide can also exist as a liquid compressed gas.
