Sulfuric Acid Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

Sulfuric Acid (a.k.a. H2SO4) figures among the most important chemicals. It has a number of large-scale essential uses such as: in the production of phosphoric acid (a key fertilizer), as a pickling agent for iron and steel, as a component of lead storage batteries, in water treatment, and in the production of textile fibers, detergents, as well as in the manufacture of other chemicals.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Sulfuric Acid production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Sulfuric Acid production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Sulfuric Acid from Sulfur via Double-Contact Process - Cost Analysis | Sulfuric Acid E11A

This report presents the economics of Sulfuric Acid production from sulfur in the United States. In this process, sulfur is burned to form sulfor dioxide, which is then converted to sulfur trioxide. Sulfor trioxide is converted to sulfuric acid by double-contact double absorption (DC/DA) with a high concentration sulfuric acid solution in water.

Sulfuric Acid from H2S Gases via Wet Sulfuric Acid Process - Cost Analysis | Sulfuric Acid E31A

This report presents the economics of recovering hydrogen sulfide gases to generate sulfuric acid in the United States. In this process hydrogen sulfide is initially burned, forming sulfur dioxide and water. The sulfur dioxide is then converted to sulfur trioxide, The sulfur trioxide reacts with the water previously generated and yields sulfuric acid.

Sulfuric Acid from Spent Acid via Double-Contact Process - Cost Analysis | Sulfuric Acid E41A

This report presents the economics of spent sulfuric acid regeneration via double-contact double absorption process. The spent acid is first decomposed in a furnace to sulfur dioxide, which is oxidized to sulfur trioxide. Finally, it is fed to the absorption process for producing sulfuric acid. The economic analysis performed is based on a plant constructed in the USA.
