Sulphur analysis (Sulfur in the USA) is of paramount importance in petro-related fuel industries primarily due to its direct impact on environmental and human health. High Sulphur content in fuels, such as petrol (gasoline) and diesel, leads to the emission of Sulphur dioxide (SO2) when burned. SO2 is a major contributor to air pollution and the formation of acid rain, which can harm ecosystems, corrode infrastructure, and have adverse health effects on humans.
To mitigate these environmental and health concerns, many countries have established stringent regulations limiting the sulphur content in fuels. Low-sulphur fuels, often referred to as ultra-low sulphur fuels, significantly reduce harmful emissions when combusted.
Accurate sulphur analysis is necessary to ensure that fuel products meet these regulatory requirements. In this section of the website, we focus on equipment and standards surrounding sulphur analysis predominantly concerned with fuels.
