This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Sulfuric Acid production from sulfur. The process examined is a conventional process comprising sulfur burning followed by a typical double-contact double absorption (DC/DA) process. In this process, sulfur dioxide is obtained by molten sulfur burning. Sulfur dioxide is converted to sulfur trioxide in a reactor. The sulfur trioxide-rich gaseous stream is absorbed in recirculating sulfuric acid. The absorption column offgas is sent to a bed in the SO2 reactor for converting the remaining sulfur dioxide into sulfur trioxide, which is then absorbed in a second column with recirculating sulfuric acid.
This report, Sulfuric Acid E11A, is a best-in-class examination of Sulfuric Acid production, providing an in-depth, comprehensive techno-economic analysis of the production technology examined, including:
- Process Description: raw materials and utilities consumption, products generation, labor requirements, list of equipment, characterization of site infrastructure, process flow diagram (PFD).
- Capital Cost Analysis: costs of plant construction, working capital, owners' costs, commissioning, start-up and contingency.
- Operating Cost Analysis: variable costs, fixed costs (salary, benefits & maintenance) and corporate overhead costs.
- And much more . . .
