Sulfur Utilization in Pollution Abatement.
Proc 4th Miner Waste Utilization Symp Chicago IllinoisMay 7-8 1974 1974 May; 4:409-416
The development of methods to use sulfur in preventing air and water pollution from mineral processing wastes was initiated as part of the federal Bureau of Mines sulfur utilization program. Sulfur- based materials have been developed to form protective crusts or coatings on dry mill waste tailings to prevent dusting and water erosion. The use of sulfur in impervious materials to contain acid leach liquors and prevent ground water pollution by waste liquors is described.
