Disposal and recycling of waste in Ukraine

Utilization of ethyl mercaptan, odorant

To avoid the poisoning of personnel in case of leakage of a reagent, odorants are used in modern petrochemistry and pharmaceutical production - volatile substances with a pronounced aroma, which are added in small amounts to the original compound. One of the most common odorants is ethyl mercaptan. Proper disposal of ethyl mercaptan is a necessary measure to preserve the environment.

What is ethyl mercaptan?

Ethyl mercaptan is a flammable organic compound, a liquid with a sharp putrid odor that does not have a pronounced color. The specific gravity of the substance is less than the specific gravity of water. When interacting with air, it forms explosive mixtures, since the density of ethyl mercaptan is higher, therefore its vapors are heavier. At a temperature of -147 degrees Celsius, the substance crystallizes, and at + 35 degrees ethyl mercaptan begins to boil.


Ethyl mercaptan is widely used for industrial and domestic purposes as an odorant. It is ethyl mercaptan that serves as an additive to natural gas, which we all use daily in everyday life.

This chemical compound is also used for the production of sleeping drugs.

Storage conditions and disposal

The technology involves the storage of substances in vertical containers. It is not allowed to store ethyl mercaptan in excess of 1,6 tons. The maximum permissible content of a substance in the air should not exceed 1 mg / m3.

Ethyl mercaptan is dangerous for humans. This substance is not only explosive, but also toxic. Poisoning causes nausea, dizziness, convulsions and lesions of the central nervous system, can be fatal.

Ethyl mercaptan vapor is precipitated with water. Next is the neutralization of the substance. Ethyl mercaptan is neutralized using an 10% aqueous alkali solution or other chemical compounds, such as potassium permanganate or calcium hypochlorite. Recycling one ton of ethyl mercaptan requires about 6,5 tons of this solution.

In case of soil contamination, the affected layer is removed, after which it is disinfected.

What happens if not disposed of?

Ethyl mercaptan is not amenable to natural neutralization. If not disposed of, the substance will accumulate, which will inevitably lead to tragic consequences, given the high degree of toxicity and explosion hazard of its vapors.
