Dangers of Hydrogen sulfide

Hydrogen sulfide is a toxic gas that can be found in groundwater¹. It has been linked to a range of different health complaints¹. Elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide can put local ecosystems under threat¹. When hydrogen sulfide is suspended in water, it can be corrosive³. Over time, this can significantly reduce the lifespan of wastewater solutions at the facility, which in turn leads to expensive replacement and repair work³. If corrosion goes unchecked, leakages, collapses, and other malfunctions can occur, putting human life at risk³.
