I once visited a Pulp and Paper mill in North Carolina. Pulp
mills are notorious for the strong unpleasant odor that surrounds
certain types of pulping processes. As we drove into the "wall of
bad smells" there were about a half dozen beautiful homes.
Expensive for the area and with a lot of outdoor kids
toys and things. During lunch we went off site and the Plant
Manager commented about the houses - pointed out where he
lived. He said the smell did not bother him. He said it was
the smell of money.

I think it was actually sulfur compounds.

The Houston area has a major chemical plant presence - and it was
one of the first areas in the country that began hiring engineers
after the recession.
