Confirmed technical papers for 2022

We are pleased to announce the initial list of confirmed technical papers for the sulphur and sulphuric acid tracks. We're delighted at the high number of papers authored or co-authored by operating companies in this year's agenda - ensuring a high level of peer-to-peer knowledge sharing of operational experience and troubleshooting. 

The timetabled agenda will be published in August 2022 along with the abstracts for the papers below.
