The magazine for the sulphur and sulphuric acid industries 

Celebrating 70 years in 2023

November/December 2023 Issue

  • The future of phosphate production- In spite of changing patterns of demand, deglobalisation and environmental concerns, phosphate mining and acid-based processing are likely to be the mainstay of the industry for years to come.
  • Sulphuric acid markets- The merchant market for sulphuric acid is dominated by smelter acid producers. Increasing replacement of acid imports by dedicated sulphur burning acid plants by end use consumers is reducing the scope for merchant sales and could lead to overcapacity in the near term.
  • Sulphur + Sulphuric Acid 2023- A report on CRU’s annual Sulphur + Sulphuric Acid conference, held in New Orleans, USA, in early November 2023.
  • Upgrading refractory solutions- Gouda Refractories continues to upgrade its refractory solutions for the sulphur recovery industry as well as developing new superior products for installations operating at higher temperatures due to oxygen enrichment.
  • Innovative redesign of an economiser- PT Petrokimia Gresik describe the innovative redesign of the first economiser, a critical component in sulphuric acid production, focusing on energy efficiency, decarbonisation, process optimisation, and equipment durability.
  • Seeking out energy in sulphuric acid plants- Alfa Laval report on case study of a sulphuric acid plant in Northwest China that is looking to capture its low-grade heat for reuse and significantly reduce the amount of fossil fuels used in production.
  • Optimising refinery assets with fertilizer production- Honeywell UOP’s nViro Hydro process provides an alternative solution to conventional hydroprocessing waste treatment utilising a sulphur recovery unit and tail gas treating unit.
  • Next generation sulphur plant analysers- As plants move towards full unit control, Ametek Process Instruments provides an overview of how the latest sulphur plant analysers are providing greater insight into sulphur plant operations.
  • Sulphur plant revamps to meet future challenges- RATE USA discusses some of the many solutions available to revamp sulphur plants to meet stricter environmental regulations with regard to SO2 and CO2 emissions.
