Thousands oi tons mined daily,
but where does it all go? L ^ i d you ever have the misfortune on a steaming, sticky, sultr~y day to sit it out on a crowded parkway, bumper to bumper, waiting for traffic to clear? No doubt your thoughts were plenty sulphurous but probably not along the lines we have in mind.
We're thinking of the mineral Sulphur and its link with the automobile. Each car accounts for a substantial poundage of Sulphur, some estimates put it at around 25 pounds for the average car. Give or take 5 pounds, it shov/s thai a tremendous tonnage of Sulphur is needed each year top>ut cars, buses and trucks on the road ready to operate. And don't forget thetire and battery replacements going on every day.
Sulphur enters the automobile picture through the tires, steel sheets, plated and plastic fittings, glass, battery acid and parts, copper tubing and wiring . . . a l l of which call for the use of Sulphur or its compounds in connection with their manufacture.
Can you wonder that Sulphur goes into industry just about a s fast as the sulphur producers of the Gulf Coast Region can get it above ground and cooled preparatory to shipment?
