Regarding to the importance of applying odorants and other odour materials in gas industry, which isincreasing today, this article subjects to odorant production in order to reach to the pure mercaptans in apilot plant scale. Huge gas sources in Iran, the necessity of exploration, and safety problems of naturalgas applications make us to apply proper methods to produce odorant. Our method is not a syntheticmethod, however it based on the development of demercaptanization process. The pilot operationincluding two parts, making caustic feed (contain sodium mercaptide) and reactive distillation, has beeninvestigated. Also the results of odorant analysis has been examined in this article.
