Abstract The decomposition of carbonyl sulfide (COS) was studied as a means of recovering sulfur from waste gases containing COS. Carbonyl sulfide was decomposed to sulfur and CO in a silent electrical discharge. Over 50 pct of the COS was decomposed at room temperature and atmospheric pressure in a 17-kv ozonizer using a gas containing 0.9 pct COS in helium flowing at a rate of 0.3 liter/min. This method has possible application in eliminating COS generated in petroleum refineries and in processes involving reactions between sulfurous and carbonaceous materials.
