Enhanced sulfur recovery Stronger environmental awareness and new sulfur processes call for an upgrade in sulfur-recovery units. Refineries are usually equipped with Claus plants to produce sulfur from hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Quantities of H2S to be treated increase as sulfur levels in refinery products are reduced. This puts more load to Claus plants and also to tail-gas-treatment (TGT) units. Overall sulfur recovery rates of well above 99.5% must be achieved. This is only possible with modern TGT units loaded with innovative TGT catalysts. The HDMax 213 series of TGT catalysts, further improving the series of C29 catalysts for hydrogenation of all sulfur compounds, can reportedly withs
