Hydrodesulfurization is current chemical method for sulfur removal which converts organic sulfur in the feed higher hydrogen pressure and temperature giving greater sulfur removal [5, 6, 7].

Hydrodesulfurization is a widely used catalytic chemical process that removes sulfur from natural gas and refined petroleum products, such as gasoline and diesel and jet fuels.
It is installed on feedstock streams, fixed-bed hydrotreaters, hydrocrackers, and hydrodesulfurization units.
Engelhard said its desulfurization solutions include passive adsorption, "which uses proprietary adsorbents to remove organic and inorganic sulfur compounds at ambient pressure and temperature;" selective catalytic oxidation (SCO), "which uses a proprietary catalyst to selectively oxidize the sulfur compounds to oxides of sulfur [that] are easily adsorbed in high capacity on a downstream adsorbent;" and hydrodesulfurization (HDS), "which utilizes a novel precious metal catalyst to convert the sulfur compounds to hydrogen sulfide, which is then adsorbed on a high-capacity adsorbent.
