Storage Guidelines

For safe storage of Sulphuric Acid:

  • Location: Store in a cool, dry place, away from incompatible substances.
  • Container: Use acid-resistant containers, ideally made of glass, ceramic, or certain plastics.
  • Labeling: Clearly label containers to prevent accidents and misidentification.
  • Ventilation: Ensure proper ventilation in storage areas.
  • Handling: Employ protective gear and follow safety protocols when handling Sulphuric Acid.

Production Capacity:

Production capacity for Sulphuric Acid varies by manufacturing facility. It is primarily produced through the contact process, involving the oxidation of sulfur dioxide (SO2) to create sulfur trioxide (SO3), which is then dissolved in water to form Sulphuric Acid. Facilities range from small-scale operations to large industrial plants, ensuring a consistent supply for various industries.

Environmental Impact:

Sulphuric Acid production can have environmental implications, primarily due to sulfur dioxide emissions. Facilities often implement measures to reduce emissions and minimize environmental impact.
