In-person Conference

Sulphur Products Summit

Insight on Ag and Indusry

October 1-2, 2019
InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta

The Sulphur Products Summit was co-hosted Bloomberg/Green Markets and Acuity Commodities on October 1st and 2nd, 2019 in Atlanta. It was the second event on which Green Markets and Acuity Commodities have partnered together, the first being in May 2017.

This conference differs from other sulphur events in that it is focused on all commercial aspects of the various agricultural and industrial uses of sulphur products. We assembled a faculty of speakers that represented various industry segments include waste-water treatment, pulp & paper and of course agriculture.

As Tampa Sulphur prices have lost half their value since the start of 2019 and Phosphate fertilizer prices have dropped by almost 30%, all participants were understandably nervous about where the Sulphur (and related) markets are headed. Fiona Boyd, President of Acuity made detailed presentations on the current market state and future outlooks for both Sulphur and Sulfuric Acid whilst Alexis Maxwell, new research director at Green Markets, discussed the trends and outlooks for both the Phosphate and Ammonium Sulfate markets.

The topics also included such subjects as marine ‘bunker fuel’ regulations (IMO 2020), Alkylation in the fuels space, natural gas markets and sulfuric acid use in the metals and mining industry.

See list of all speakers and presentation topics below. If you would like to purchase any of the presentations, or would like to know more about Green Markets’ coverage and research of the Phosphate and Sulphur markets, please contact Jonathan Wentworth-Ping at: jping8@bloomberg.net
