Well a rotten egg smell is usually Hydrogen sulfide and the common sources are natural gas (added for safety so people can smell it) and also from petrochemical processing, but of course can occur pretty much anywhere you get elemental sulfur.

The thing I find curious about this story is many of these smells have no apaprent origin. Here are just a few other ATS threads about similar smells.
