Brimstone Sulfur Symposium – Vail

SonnenalpThe Brimstone Sulfur Symposia are widely recognized as highly interactive and productive gatherings for discussion of sulfur recovery and treating.  The Vail Symposium’s goals are to provide information aimed at improving the operating reliability, efficiency, and safety of sulfur processing units while minimizing operating costs. These are accomplished through presentation of relevant technical papers and sharing of information through informal open floor discussions along with extensive Question and Answer sessions.  This symposium will be valuable to everyone interested in furthering their knowledge of currently used processes and equipment, new technologies, and best practices for operation of amine, SWS, Claus sulfur recovery, and tail gas units.

The Vail Sulfur Recovery Symposium is held every September in Vail, Colorado at the Sonnenalp Resort.

Brimstone's "Virtual Vail" Sulfur Recovery Symposium Online

This year’s 2021 Brimstone Vail Sulfur Recovery Symposium will be held as an online event again this year due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions.  While we fully expect to be back together live and in person next year, this year’s “Virtual Vail” conference will be similar in format to last year’s: a three-day online meeting held on the afternoons of September 14th – 16th (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday). This will be our 28th consecutive year for the Sulfur Recovery Symposium, which in the past has been held in Calgary, Abu Dhabi, and of course, our conference home in beautiful Vail, Colorado.

The Brimstone Vail Sulfur Recovery Symposium covers the latest and most in-depth technical topics related to sulfur recovery and amine treating. Each of the three sessions will last three hours followed by an optional one-hour general Q&A session. Like all our symposia, presentations will focus on sulfur recovery and amine treating. The presentations will be made by members of our vendor and operating companies, and will also include annual technical papers by Alberta Sulfur Research and the Amine Best Practices Group. We will announce our Call for Papers later this week, so keep an eye out for that.
We expect these presentations will be of the same high quality and interest as those our conference has offered for the last 27 years.

The cost for this “Virtual Vail” Sulfur Recovery Symposium will be $400 per person, and registration will be handled through our normal symposium registration process. Registration opens at 08:00 pdt on Wednesday, July 21st. We are limiting this conference to 100 attendees, and as with our regular conferences, “seats” will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees will be expected to identify themselves with their names and company (or group) affiliation and participant contact information (based on registration data) will be shared afterward with attendees. The registration fee will be waived for presenters.

The meeting will use Zoom as our teleconferencing platform, and please recognize that, unlike our regular annual in-person symposium, we will not be able to guarantee confidentiality with respect to the content provided by our speakers or any verbal or written comments and/or questions.  Nevertheless, we expect to see some very informative presentations with some lively Q&A and discussion.

We look forward to returning to our regular in-person conference in Vail, but until then, we hope to see you at this virtual version of the renowned Brimstone Sulfur Recovery Symposium.
