Abstract

For the treatment of huge amounts of the sulfur which is from the earth by both natural and man-made activities, a harmonized sulfur cycle was presented. The man-made sulfur cycle which includes sulfur circulation from oil, coal and ore was analyzed in detail based on the recent world sulfur trend. Then the man-made cycle was compared with the natural sulfur evolution such as volcano. Finally, the harmony in both natural and man-made sulfur cycles was discussed.
