This document provides background information on sulfur emissions and emissions control for claus sulfur recovery plants in petroleum refineries. State and Federal emission regulations are summarized. The claus process is described with emphasis on factors which affect emissions. Emission controls are also detailed with accompanying costs and performance data. Other environmental and energy impacts associated with claus emissions controls are outlined. Detailed energy balances and operating cost estimates are presented in appendices for two representative control systems. This information was developed for a four-year review of the New Source Performance Standard for refinery claus sulfur plants (40CFR60, Sub part J) as required by the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977.
