It’s the General idea, you’ll get the point.
Each year, the refining industry spends a quarter-billion dollars to produce hydrogen so that sulfur can be removed from refinery products. This creates more than 6 million tons of hydrogen sulfide, a waste that must be treated to meet environmental regulations. Although current waste-treatment technology recovers nearly all of the sulfur (99.0-99.5%), the remaining amount is emitted to the atmosphere as sulfur dioxide. Moreover, the valuable hydrogen is burned to water, making it unavailable for further use.
This loss has a direct impact on the bottom-line.
