Abstract
The report discusses Claus sulfur plant emissions and control, based on literature, supplemented with data from companies operating or designing Claus plants. It discusses process variations, investment, and operating costs. It lists data for 169 Claus plants in 31 states, with daily sulfur capacities totaling over 15,800 long tons, most based on natural gas or petroleum refining. Total capacity of 66 Canadian plants is 60 percent more than the U.S. total.
