Sulfuric Acid Production Cost Analysis 2020

Sulfuric acid or vitriol is a mineral acid consisting of elements like sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen. It is a colourless, odourless, and viscous liquid that is miscible in water and is synthesized in highly exothermic reactions. Its corrosiveness can be primarily ascribed to its strong acidic nature. At a high concentration, it has dehydrating and oxidizing properties. 

Sulfuric acid is a very crucial commodity chemical. It is widely manufactured with different processes, such as the contact process, wet sulfuric acid process, lead chamber process, and some other processes. Sulfuric acid is a key substance in the chemical industry. It is most widely used in fertilizer production. It is also crucial in mineral processing, oil refining, wastewater processing, and chemical synthesis.  Sulfuric acid finds its end applications in domestic acidic drain cleaners and as the electrolyte in lead-acid batteries.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Sulfuric Acid production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
