Calabrian Celebrates Successful Start Up of SO2 Expansion with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Kingwood, Texas December 17, 2014: Calabrian Corporation, the largest prime producer of liquid sulfur dioxide and related derivatives in North America, celebrated with a ribbon cutting on their successful start-up of their newly expanded SO2 production at the Port Neches, Texas plant.
The expansion utilizes Calabrian's proprietary SO2CLEAN technology. The technology, which burns sulfur in pure oxygen, enables production that is highly reliable, free of SOX and NOX emissions and expandable on a modular basis, and is therefore economically superior to a sulfur burner. These characteristics speed permitting, allow rapid expansion, and make SO2CLEAN ideal for in situ production. The driver behind the expansion is Calabrian's strategy of strengthening its leading position in SO2 and derivatives.
On October 27th, Calabrian's Port Neches facility exceeded one year with no recordable injuries; a safety record for the company. Calabrian's President and CEO Randy Owens presents this commemorative award to Benny Deters, Director of Manufacturing for the accomplishment.
Calabrian Celebrates a Safety Milestone
Randy Owens states, "We could not have accomplished this achievement without the dedication, hard work, and commitment of our employees on keeping a safe workplace." A celebration luncheon was held on October 30th in honor of all the employees and their contribution to keeping safety their top priority.

SO2Clean: High purity SO2

An Alternative to Burning Sulfur in Air

SO2Clean is a proven, commercial, environmentally friendly and proprietary technology that was developed by Calabrian in the early 90’s to produce high purity sulfur dioxide by burning sulfur in oxygen rather than air.

Burning sulfur in pure oxygen offers significant advantages – nitrogen and other inerts are not present which significantly reduces downstream equipment size/costs, eliminates gas separation/operational complexities and dramatically simplifies air permitting…

S02Clean: For Mining

All the benefits of SO2...hassle free!

The use of SO2 in solution mining and leaching of metals (particularly uranium, gold, silver, cobalt, nickel and manganese) is generating great interest for yield improvement and cost reduction.

SO2 is also the best choice for destruction of cyanide in the leaching of precious metals.

SO2Clean: for Sulfur Recovery Unit (SRU) Debottlenecking

Increasing sulfur recovery capacity has become more important with the economic benefits derived from utilizing higher sulfur crude and the never ending push toward cleaner, low sulfur fuels.  Historically, refiners needing to double capacity have added SRUs or debottlenecked existing units through O2 enrichment which requires major reengineering/reconstruction. Both are unattractive options given exorbitant capex and footprint/infrastructure limitations. There is another, better way to debottleneck… direct injection of high purity SO2 into the SRU!
