Sulfuric acid is the most needed and most versatile base chemical worldwide
Sulfuric acid is used in almost all industrial sectors. Typical areas of application are in the production of fertilizers and pigments as well as metal ore leaching. In addition, sulfuric acid is used extensively in the chemical industry, whether in fiber production, hydrofluoric acid production, chlorine drying or one of the many other applications.
