Due to global environmental rules, the sulfur content of fuels is steadily declining. The European Community is lowering the sulfur levels in gasoline and diesel to below 50 ppm beginning in 2005 under the Auto Oil II Programme. Similar programs are underway in North America and other developed regions. Refiners are endeavoring to separate more sulfur compounds from fuel products. Thus, final treatment units must manage even higher volumes of sulfur compounds - in particular, increasing volumes of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Refineries will need to efficiently expand tail-gas-treating units. Selecting the proper sulfur re
