Sulphur compounds in fuel cause major environmental pollution. Hence, the desulphurization of fuel has become a tremendous concern. Aside from the standard hydrodesulphurization method, many new processes have gained attention. Our present work discusses varied non-conventional desulphurization techniques likeaerobic desulphurization, adsorbent desulphurization, membrane desulphurization, extractive desulphurization, etc. These strategies in conjunction with their pros and cons are mentioned well.

Keywords: Desulfurization, fuel, biofuel, non-conventional processes, aromatics, microfibrous material.
