The magazine for the sulphur and sulphuric acid industries

January/February 2023 Issue

  • CO2 recovery options in sulphur plants
    CO2 emission abatement strategies have become increasingly important as the world strives to combat global climate change - RATE USA discusses carbon capture options available for sulphur recovery units.
  • Do you have a plan for a weak acid incident - hydrogen safety
    The world has seen a number of hydrogen explosions in double absorption plants. To review this increase and to determine the causes, an International Hydrogen Safety Workgroup was formed including major acid plant contractors, major acid producers and consultants in the sulphuric acid arena - Davis & Associates Consulting explores some of the findings
  • Sulphur recovery in the energy transition
    In the current energy transition era, the oil and gas industry is focusing on lowering its carbon footprint while generating green energy resources such as blue hydrogen. Fluor Solutions/Goar, Allison & Associates demonstrates how SRU/TGTU plants within sour gas facilities can facilitate the capture of CO2 and generate H2 by implementing advanced sulphur recovery technologies.
  • Sulphur run-down liquid level prediction
    CSI has developed a method to predict the liquid level and maximum capacity of sulphur run-down lines in Claus sulphur recovery units and avoid the problems observed in the field which appear to be cuased by undersized run-down lines.
  • Hydrogen safety in sulphuric acid plants
    Industry turnover is a reality, and keeping new employees informed of hydrogen safety procedures is key to keeping plants fully operational and incident free. Elessent Clean Technologies discusses the steps facilities need to take to prevent hydrogen incidents.
  • The art of candle filter wetting
    When candle filter mist eliminators installed in the absorption towers in sulphuric acid plants are not sufficiently wet, problems can occur, such as free SO3 at the stack., NOx issues and emission non-compliance. Begg Cousland Envirotec discusses how these problems can be overcome by the installation of an annual wetting ring solution.
  • Is there a looming sulphur shortage?
    Last year attention was drawn to the potential for large scale decarbonisation to leave the world short of the key resources of sulphur, and hence sulphuric acid. But is there a global sulphur shortage on the distant horizon?
  • The impact of Ukraine on sulphur markets
    Last year saw global trade in all commodities have to take into account the potential loss of supply from Russia, a key exporter of many commodities. Sulphur was no exception, with prices surging wildly across the year.
