Sulfur

Sulfur is an important element in nature. Being one of the components that make up proteins and vitamins, they play an essential role  in the metabolic processes of living organisms. In industry, sulfur is used extensively which causes the release of  sulfur dioxide (SO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to the atmosphere. These undesirable compounds affect both animals and humans because of their unpleasant odor and because they are often highly toxic. In nature, sulfur compounds are formed during various reactions, for example through volcanic eruptions, bacterial processes, the evaporation of water or the decay of dead organisms. By reduction or oxidation reactions, micro-organisms gain energy from the conversion of  sulfur compounds. To this end they contain  specific enzymes. Microbial analyses are used to provide insight into the sulfur metabolics for your specific case.
