A South Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: "South Wales Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 10.08am to reports of carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulphide
readings in the basement of the Information Station.
is a colourless gas and, being a weak acid, is highly soluble in water.
Diener, "Actions of hydrogen sulphide
on ion transport across rat distal colon," British Journal of Pharmacology, vol.
In case of production the downstream production plants must also be tailored to the specific properties of sour gas and associated challenges: a cleaning plant first of all removes the hydrogen sulphide
from the gas using the OASE gas treatment technology developed by Wintershall's parent company, BASF.
The calculations suggest that there should be lower flame speed and pressure build-up in propagating hydrogen sulphide
deflagration than natural gas mixtures.
However, there was some stagnant water at the bottom and hydrogen sulphide
can build up in stagnant, polluted water.
"Data available so far strongly suggest that hydrogen sulphide
may become the next potent agent for preventing and ameliorating the symptoms of ageing and age-associated diseases," Jiang said in a statement, adding that people may one day take hydrogen sulphide-rich food or supplements to slow ageing.
is known to be a deceptive gas, because although it is very pungent at first, it quickly deadens the sense of smell, so potential victims may be unaware of its presence until it is too late.
The filter has bacteria that feed on the hydrogen sulphide
. With the hydrogen sulphide
taken up by these bacteria, what is released is air that is odourless, he added.
So he tried again in 1958 and took the crucial step of adding hydrogen sulphide
- a toxic gas released by volcanoes - to the mix.
Small amounts of hydrogen sulphide
- a toxic gas generated by bacteria living in the human gut - are responsible for the foul odour of flatulence.
