We recover sulphur in our production processes to produce a significant quantity of high purity sulphuric acid.
Sulphuric acid is a vital commodity in any modern national economy. In fact it’s so widely used, its consumption rate – like steel production or electricity power – is a good barometer of a nation’s prosperity.
It is used, either directly or indirectly, in almost any industry you care to think of. The chemical is an essential ingredient in the production of fertilisers, fibres, paint, rubber, plastics, steel, detergent and medicines, and can even be found, perhaps surprisingly, in many beers and soft drinks.
One of its more specialised uses is in the production of high strength fibres for use in bulletproof vests and yacht sails.
