Seeing the current environmental conditions, the world has shifted its interest in the utilization of waste materials to reduce environmental burden, to achieve sustainability, and add product value. There are a number of ways to achieve such a cause, including green chemistry. Elemental sulfur is one of the main highlights, it is a by-product of petroleum industries and gas refineries and causing environmental waste. As sulfur is the most mass-produced material in the world. Even though it has a limited number of uses.
However to make things right market-leading industries like OCCL are using this waste material and turning it into polymeric sulfur via a process called inverse vulcanization. This helps the company to manufacture chemically stable polymeric sulfur that can be easily used by various industries to make better functioning plastic products.
