Alaska Series Reductive Landscape Series When found mixed with hydrocarbon sources such as oil or coal, sulphur is a contaminant. When burned in power plants, it produces sulphur dioxide that is a contributor to acid rain. Consequently, it is chemically removed either in the refining process or after combustion. This results in tons of sulphur residue that must be disposed of in some way. Much of the bright yellow element is simply stored in immense mounds. The rest is sold for use in a variety of chemical processes such as the vulcanization of rubber to make car tires and sneakers. The mountains of sulphur depicted here were awaiting bulk shipment from the port of Vancouver.
