New Plastic Could Remove Tons of Sulfur From Oil Plants

AZ Daily Wildcat
Sulfur is released as a byproduct of burning fossil fuels and from industrial processes and reacts with oxygen to create sulfur oxides, which are pollutants that can cause major issues environmentally as they contribute to the formation of acidic rain. Dr. Jeffrey Pyun, a professor in the University of Arizona's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is among the researchers at UArizona that have been working on developing a plastic that can help remove tons of sulfur buildup in oil companies around the globe.
