Hydrogen sulfide recovered from the sweetening of fossil fuels or sought as a mineral for its intrinsic value might be converted, in an electrolytic process which uses atmospheric oxygen, into pipeline pressure hydrogen and sulfur. Such a process may be an alternative to the Claus Process, which recovers only sulfur and uses the hydrogen wastefully. It is also suggested that electrolysis provides a mechanism by which other gaseous products, as well as hydrogen, may be brought to pipeline pressures easily.
