The collaborative research and development project between KT-Kinetics Technology (KT) and the University of Salerno (UNISA) has been started over a decade ago with the main purpose to identify and develop a new process for the treatment of H2S. The starting idea was to create technological innovation by improving reliability, expanding productivity and driving down costs while reducing environmental impacts. The driving factor of this research and development project has been the production of H2 by thermal or catalytic cracking of H2S, in presence of O2 or membrane assisted. The process engineering expertise of KT jointed with the academic competences and laboratory plant of UNISA has made possible the development of experimental tests of several methods for H2S decomposition. All the knowledge acquired and the encouraging results have been utilized to develop the Selective Oxidative Autothermal Process (KT S.O.A.P.™) as the novel way to process H2S which allow to obtain H2 production and SO2minimization. This paper provides the laboratory test results for the main technology solutions investigated by KT and UNISA starting from the Catalytic Reaction Membrane Separation method (KT C.R.M.S.™) up to the Selective Oxidative Auto-thermal Process (KT S.O.A.P.™). The effects of the main operating parameters like reaction temperature, feeding ratio and residence time will be presented in terms of H2S conversion, H2 yield and SO2selectivity.
