We recently shared a paper produced by Greg Simpson, PhD, comparing bleach to chlorine dioxide when treating hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Continuing in this work, chlorine dioxide and bleach are not the only oxidants that are used to combat concerns of hydrogen sulfide.
Peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide are both alternatives that are used for treatment. Almost all of the reactions with these oxidants are pH dependent, and their reaction chemistry should be taken into account when selecting a chemical to treat H2S. Sewer water, produced water, petroleum refineries, and natural gas plants can contain dangerous concentrations of H2S, and are excellent candidates for utilizing an appropriate oxidant.
We are pleased to share Dr. Greg Simpson’s second comparison of oxidants, where peracetic acid and chlorine dioxide are compared when treating H2S.
