Sulphuric Acid Advert


The production of SO2 and Sulphuric acid remains a pertinent topic in the Southern African mining and metallurgical industry especially with the strong demand, and increasing prices of vital base metals such as cobalt and copper.

The electric car revolution is well underway and demand for cobalt is rocketing.

New sulphuric acid plants are being built, both smelters and sulphur burners as the demand for metals increases, however, these constructions take time and in the meantime sulphuric acid is being sourced from far afield, sometimes further than 2000 km away.

The need for sulphuric acid ‘sinks’ such as phosphate fertiliser plants will also become necessary.

All of the above create both opportunities and issues and supply chain challenges.

To ensure that you stay abreast of developments in the industry, The Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, invites you to participate in a conference on the production, utilization and conversion of sulphur, sulphuric acid and SO2 abatement in metallurgical and other processes to be held in March 2019 in Namibia.
