    Description

    The principal aim of this project is to produce a mass balance for the SO2 that is emitted into the atmosphere from sour gas plants in various localities in Alberta. Partial sulphur budgets for two plants at dissimilar locations are shown to exhibit major differences. The rise and dispersion of sour gas plant plumes have been investigated in detail. In order to investigate the chemical transformation of SO2 within these plumes, the use of a conserved tracer that can be detected by neutron activation is discussed.
