Sulfur demand, supply and price are projected to the year 2020. The projections are for use in establishing R and D priorities for recovery of abatement sulfur in marketable and non-marketable forms. The projections are made via a computer model, and permit estimation of the value of abatement sulfur at various times during the forecast period and for various sources and/or quantities of sulfur recovered in useful forms. The model includes the simulation of different abatement schedules and also of additional demand such as might be created by a national stockpile of elemental sulfur. The factors affecting the relative value of sulfur in acid and elemental form are analyzed. The foreign situation is also considered because of its impact on domestic supply/demand/price relationships. The future supply of sulfur will depend increasingly on recovery from fossil fuels.
