In waste treatment we often only talk about sulfur when we have odor and corrosion problems related to hydrogen sulfide or H2S. While sulfur can be a problematic compound, it is also a vital micronutrient for life and is cycled throughout the environment by biological processes. An understanding of these processes can help waste treatment operators keep sulfur in its most “benign” forms and manage to prevent both excessive odors and corrosion.
