Anyway, I think the commercial process is hydrodesulphurization.

Sorry, I do lab scale chemistry, not industrial scale.
I see from your profile that you are in Oman, if I knew any plant suppliers they would be based in the UK so they might not be much use anyway.

It depends how much you need to deodourise it and why

Some of the main components in kerosine do have a small so there will always be a residual odour even if you manage to remove the smelly components that are put in to help identify it from petrol because mixing up between petrol and kerosine as a fuel can result in dangerous explosions.
