Abstract

The various possibilities of producing H-2 in desulfurisation processes are investigated. An assessment has been made of the S contained in various raw materials for industrial processes used in the FRG from which results that it is attractive to develop such type of desulfurisation process. Large amounts of H-2 could be produced while converting environmentally and technically undesirable wastes into useful products or acceptable wastes and conserving hydrocarbon feedstocks. The H-2 equivalents which could theoretically be produced depend on the form in which S enters and leaves the process. Assuming that all the S in the FRG would be available as H-2S and H-2SO-4 or a sulfate would be produced this would about equal the total H-2 demand of Western Germany. H-2 producing desulfurisation processes are actually most attractive in petroleum refineries. They could be more attractive for coal or oil fired power stations if appropriate processes for the reduction of NO and SO2 with H-2 would be developed. They offer also the possibility of reducing the waste volume.
