Teaser Claus Process
By enriching with oxygen, the plant's capacity is significantly raised, in order to simultaneously meet the stricter requirements with regard to SO2 emissions with, at the same time, increases in the sulphur content of the raw materials.

Claus process (Sulfur Recovery, SRU)
Processing H2S rich gas streams
Elemental sulphur is now almost exclusively extracted from petroleum and natural gas in the Claus process. The sulphur compounds present are split into hydrogen sulphide and hydrocarbons and separated by amine scrubbers. The acid gas is partially oxidised to SO2 in the Claus process with atmospheric oxygen and then converted to elemental sulphur.

Recycling of Waste Sulphuric Acid
When oxygen is used as the oxidising medium, the nitrogen burden of the air is replaced by process gas containing sulphur dioxide, which can lead to a considerable increase in sulphuric acid production.
