Yes, there are significant differences, although very often the terms elemental sulphur (S) and sulphur bentonite (TIGER® 90CR sulphur) are used interchangeably. While both products are valuable, they each have very specific uses. Elemental sulphur is mined or recovered from fossil fuel production. Greater than 50% of all global sulphuric acid production results from the burning of elemental sulphur. Sulphuric acid is extremely important to the fertilizer industry, which uses it to manufacture phosphates, and to a lesser extent nitrogen, potassium, and sulphate fertilizers.
